Eugene Math Circle

The Eugene Math Circle at the University of Oregon will continue its weekly sessions for elementary, middle and high school students in 2014-15. 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 the EMC has restructured its upper division classes to allow for a wider range of background knowledge among the participants. Now, we 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 5:00-5:50 pm on Thursdays.
  • Elementary II (recommended for 4-5 graders) at 6:00-6:50 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division I (recommended for 6-8 graders) at 5:30-6:45 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division II (recommended for 9-12 graders; younger participants by invitation only) at 5:30-6:45 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division III (by invitation only) at 5:00-6:30 pm on Wednesdays.

The Fall session will begin on September 24 or 25, 2014, at UO campus (see the "Schedule") and run through the first week of December. The application forms can be found here. The application deadline is September 15, 2014 and the space is limited.

The Eugene Math Circle is sponsored by the University of Oregon Department of Mathematics, by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), and the National Security Agency (NSA).
