Visitors to the website are introduced to the Math Club Team through short personal descriptions and photos. The team of full-time teacher-mentors visit children in public schools in California and communicate via mail with students in Michigan. Through "secret codes" and an online decoding program, individual students in the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the Caribbean islands of Grenada, Trinidad, and St. Vincent also join Mike's Math Club and and correspond with each other. Various math games and activities are available in the "Do The Math" section of the website.
