Eugene Math Circle

In Winter 2020 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 7-9 graders; continuing 7th graders only) at 5:00-6:15 pm on Thursdays.
  • Upper Division III (recommended for 9-12 graders; continuing 9th graders only) at 5:00-6:30 pm on Wednesdays.

This Winter the first meetings of the Elementary I, II and Upper Division I, II classes will be on January 9. The first meeting of the Upper Division III will be on January 8. The last meetings of the Elementary I, II, Upper Division I and II will on March 12. The last meeting for the Upper Division III will be on March 11.
