What are Math Circles?
Elementary and middle-school students who are academically talented in Math often lack opportunity to explore the subject beyond the existing school curriculum. By high school, their valuable computational and problem-solving skills are under-developed, adversely impacting their motivation and grit to tackle challenging tasks.
Math Circles – an informal meet to explore deeper nuances of math with peers and teachers – are currently offered by select universities on select topics for select students. It also lacks a year-long commitment and hence, a sense of community.
