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 Fall we plan to in-person classes with a synchronous online option for elementary and younger middle school students (Elementary I, II, and Upper Division I). 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 Fall we will offer five different sessions, two for elementary school students and three for middle and high school students. Note the time change for the Upper II classes.

Session Recommended Age Time Location
Elementary I 2-3 graders 4:30-5:20 pm Thursdays TBA
Elementary II 4-5 graders 5:30-6:20 pm Thursdays TBA
Upper Division I 6-7 graders 6:30-7:30 pm Thursdays TBA
Upper Division II 8-9 graders 5:45-7:00 pm Wednesdays TBA
Upper Division III 10-12 graders 5:00-6:30 pm Wednesdays TBA

There are 10 weekly meetings per term. For the Upper Division II and III classes the term begins on September 21 and for the Elementary I, II, and Upper Division I classes on September 22. The last meetings of the Winter term will be on November 30 for the Upper Division II and III, and on December 1 for all the other classes.

The application forms for the Math Circle can be found here. Please note that if the class your child is applying to is full, they will be put on the waiting list.
