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 Spring term will begin in the first week of April (see the "Schedule") and run for 10 weeks.

The application forms for the Math Circle can be found here. The application target date is March 15, 2017 and the space is limited.

This year the Eugene Math Circle helped the Math Department to organize the Eugene Youth Math Festival, which took place on February 18. The information and the photos from the event can be found on here.

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