Math Club
Cost: none
Meetings held monthly after school.
Northview’s Math Club is centered on involving students in mathematics outside of their usual math classes. We do this through two main avenues, the annual JETS competition and monthly Math Club Problems. JETS  is basically an engineering competition held in the spring at The University of Toledo. Teams of 5 to 8 students compete against other area teams with the opportunity to reach state and national competitions. On a broader level, the Math Club Problems are non-standard problems (they might make you think a little more than usual!) published each month as a competition. They are available for all Northview students and anyone correctly solving any of the problems is then entered into a drawing for prizes at the end of the year. Math Club members are given first priority when it comes to forming the JETS teams and they also help determine suitability of solutions for the monthly problems.

Quiz Bowl  
Cost: see advisor

A Pay to Participate fee is associated with this activity
Meetings held in G4, typically one hour practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We have seven three-way matches on Mondays from October until February.
From students who just can’t miss an episode of Jeopardy, to students who just seem to know everything about music or sports, Quiz Bowl is for you.  The club competes with other local high schools, much like on Jeopardy. But instead of one on one action, this “sport” pits two teams of four against each other. The teams use their buzzers to ring in with the answer to a trivia question, before the other team can. Questions can be about almost anything. Common question subjects include fine art, literature, math, politics, history, geography, and pop culture. Everyone is guaranteed to know at least some answers. The club hosts tournaments and also travels to other high school tournaments. In the past, the club has also gone to larger tournaments at The Ohio State University, and The University of Michigan. But don’t be intimidated by the big names and math questions, Quiz Bowl can be fun for anyone.

Cost: $350 offset by fund-raising
Meetings held once a week in fall with increasing time based on competitions.
Robotics is a club that strives to inspire young people with an appreciation of

and technology and an understanding that mastering these can enrich the lives of all.  In Robotics, students work together to build a robot for a specific competition, with the game format changing every season.  The production of a robot from start to finish is an exciting process that aids in the development of teamwork.  Each person works on a different part, and like a puzzle, the parts fit together to complete the picture.  The students involved in Robotics meet on a varying schedule based on the deadlines of the competition. .  For most of the year students meet once a week for a couple of hours.  However, during the actual “season” (which lasts from January through February) the team meets for approximately 12 – 20 hours per week, usually during two school nights and most of the day on Saturday.  From September through December students are given numerous chances through fund-raisers to earn the $350 needed to be a part of the Robotics Team.  This money is used for parts for the robot, travel expenses to two competitions, food, spirit wear, etc.  However, the bulk of the money needed to compete in our two regional events and to run the team throughout the year is donated by the DANA Corporation.  There are 5 advisors from DANA, adult advisors from area businesses, parent volunteers, as well as Mr. Andy Roth, a chemistry teacher at Northview.  Most new team members join during May and June so that they can go through training exercises over the summer.  Any student who is interested in joining is more then welcome to come and see Mr. Roth in room D-10 at any point during the school year.
