Eugene Math Circle

Eugene Math Circle

The Eugene Math Circle at the University of Oregon will continue its weekly sessions for the elementary, middle and high school students in 2016-17. We invite students who enjoy math, like solving challenging problems and want to learn exciting topics that are normally outside the school curriculum. The Math Circle leaders are members of the Mathematics Department.

This year we will expended our program and will offer five different sessions, two for the elementary school students and three for the middle and high school students.

  • Elementary I (recommended for 2-3 graders) at 4:30-5:20 pm on Thursdays.
  • Elementary II (recommended for 4-5 graders) at 6:30-7:20 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division I (recommended for 6-7 graders) at 5:30-6:20 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division II (recommended for 7-8 graders; continuing 7th graders only) at 5:30-6:45 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division III (recommended for 9-12 graders) at 5:00-6:30 pm on Wednesdays.

The Winter term will begin in the second week of January (see the "Schedule") and run for 10 weeks. Please note that because of the conflict with the Math Kangaroo Competition, the last meeting of the term for the Elementary I and II and for the Upper Division I and II will be on March 23 instead of March 16. All students are encouraged to participate in the Math Kangaroo Competition on March 16.

The application forms for the Math Circle can be found here. The application target date is December 12, 2016 and the space is limited.

The Eugene Math Circle is sponsored by the University of Oregon Department of Mathematics and by the National Science Foundation.
