The Chesapeake Math Program
offers math and science clubs, classes, and contest opportunities to students in Maryland, D.C., and northern Virginia. We sponsor teams for many programs, both national and local, at the high school, middle school, and elementary school levels, and we offer scholarships or small grants in math and the sciences. We began as the Howard Area Homeschoolers in 2001, and the program soon expanded to include students from all types of schools, including public, private, and charter schools.
Each year CMP sponsors students and their parents' travel to National Competitions throughout the United States. Your contribution will help CMP continue with providing travel and lodging assistance to these families.

We went to the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville after the competition to see the Science Fiction Exhibit, which was awesome. We also saw a Saturn V rocket, a space shuttle, and all sorts of other cool stuff. Afterward, we went to a Halloween party sponsored by the Space Center. Then we got caught in the pouring down rain trying to reach the car. Much wetness and running later, we were in the cars and headed back to the hotel, where we had a Halloween party with candy and gaming (since it was raining too much to trick-or-treat).
Congratulations to our mathletes for a job well done!
