Fall 2018

Math Circle will return for the fall 2018 semester!

At Math Circle, we will talk about exciting topics that don’t get covered in the classroom. We will explore math through playing games and discussing what you’ve learned. You will challenge yourself while discovering patterns, learning math-based strategies, and discovering why math works and not just the procedure to solve a problem.
