2008 MIT - ALC HIGHLIGHTS - Alumni Promote Hands-on Science and Math - September 2008
Excerpt about Joe Quigley from the MIT-ALC conference:
...
When Joe Quigley ME '86, president of Quigley Scientific Corporation, began the Math Club in Lexington, MA, 12 years ago, he borrowed his initial materials from the Mathematical Olympiad. That makes sense since the club's focus is to help third through eight grade students have fun and prepare for the annual Mathematical Olympiad Contest and the Applied Mathematics Challenge Contest. His goal is for students to achieve a perfect score-and his students have been remarkably successful. Some 11 percent of all the U.S. Math Olympiad perfect scores come from his Math Club students. "Kids learn from one another," he says. "I group third through fifth graders together. Peer group interaction is awesome."
