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 will continue offering online classes for the elementary and middle school students. We will resume in-person classes for older high school students (Upper Division III). 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 five different sessions, two for elementary school students and three for middle and high school students.

Session Recommended Age Time Location
Elementary I 2-3 graders 4:30-5:20 pm Thursdays online
Elementary II 4-5 graders 5:30-6:20 pm Thursdays online
Upper Division I 6-7 graders 6:30-7:30 pm Thursdays online
Upper Division II 8-9 graders 5:00-6:15 pm Wednesdays online

There are 10 weekly meetings per term. The first meetings of the Elementary I, II and Upper Division I classes will be on January 6, while for the Upper Division II and III classes they will be on January 5. The last meetings of the Winter term will be on March 9 for the Upper Division II and III and on March 10 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.

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