math extra curriculars that are NOT MATH COMPETITIONS
Answered

basically what the question summary asks. I just hate math competitions because everything that I like about math is in its artistic beauty that (in my opinion) is lost in math competitions. So I was somewhat curious what other math extra curriculars there are.

currently I'm a math tutor and have a pure math internship (and am in math club but that's honestly a bore cause it's all competitions).

thanks!

Hi there,

You could start a math club that focuses on improving math skills & problem solving skills instead of being in that math club that's all about competitions. (I agree that these competitions can take the fun out of problem-solving in math) For example, in the club you could go over Pascal's Triangle, the Magic Circle, math puzzles, or some fun & easy math tricks.

You could also join clubs that are related to math such as a STEM club I think that being a math tutor and having a math internship is already pretty much covers your math extracurriculars as well.

Hope that this helps! :)
