Eugene Math Circle

Eugene Math Circle at the University of Oregon is a weekly program for grade school 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 Winter we plan to in-person classes with a synchronous online option for Elementary II (section 1) and Upper Division I students. However, if Lane county and/or the University of Oregon advise switching to online learning once again, all the classes will be taught online.

This Winter we will offer six different sessions, three for elementary school students and three for middle and high school students. Notice the time changes for Elementary I, II, and Upper Division I classes.

There are 10 weekly meetings per term. For the Upper Division II and III classes the term begins on January 11 and for the Elementary I, II, and Upper Division I classes on January 5. The last meetings for the Upper Division II and III classes will be on March 15, and for all other classes on March 9.
