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 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 Spring session will begin on April 1 or 2, 2015, at the UO campus (see the "Schedule") and run for 10 weeks. Please note that the Upper Division I will start on April 9 and continue for 10 weeks. The application forms can be found here. The application deadline is March 12, 2015 and the space is limited.

The Upper Division II meetings are cancelled for this Spring term. The continuing students should register for the Upper Division III.

The Eugene Math Circle is sponsored by the University of Oregon Department of Mathematics.
