Math Club

Mathematics is not a skill that someone is born with. It is not a talent. It is something that comes through practice and only after that do we become skilled. The Math Club is there to help you become skilled. How do we do this? Through practice! Both in-class and outside class. The only prerequisite(requirement) is to have a curious mind. Be eager to learn. Remember we learn even from our mistakes. 1 mistake means you have learned one way that doesn't work.

Club Experience

Mathematics is not a skill that someone is born with. It is not a talent. It is something that is built through practicing, only after that do we become skilled. The Math Club is there to help you become skilled. How do we do this? Through practice! Both in-class and outside of class. The only prerequisite (requirement) is to have a curious mind. Be eager to learn. Remember, we learn from our mistakes. One mistake means you have learned one way that doesn’t work.

This club is open to students of all levels.

About the Club Teacher

Since Sammy Nyakabau was young, he started becoming actively involved in school helpdesks, helping other students with their homework and clarifying class activities. In high school, he started a math help desk which helped students of all streams with their math assignments and also participated in math olympiads.

In Galileo’s math club, Sammy works with students who have the opportunity to ask him questions and discuss challenges specific to their self-directed learning progress throughout the week.

Sammy is currently pursuing a degree in Computer Programming, with a minor in Mathematics.
