Eugene Math Circle

In Fall 2018 the Eugene Math Circle at the University of Oregon will continue its weekly classes for elementary, middle, and high school students. 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 Fall we will offer five different sessions, two for elementary school students, two for middle school students, and one for 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 5:30-6:20 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division I (recommended for 6-7 graders) at 6:30-7:20 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division II (recommended for 7-8 graders; continuing 7th graders only) at 5:00-6:15 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division III (recommended for 9-12 graders) at 5:00-6:30 pm on Wednesdays.

This Fall the first meetings of the Elementary I, II and Upper Division I, II Math Circle classes will be on September 27. The first meeting of the Upper Division III will be on October 3. There will be no meetings Thanksgiving week, and the last meetings of the term will be the first week of December.

The application forms for the Math Circle can be found here. The application target date is September 14, 2018 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.
