The Santa Cruz Math Circle is a weekly math meeting for students in grades 5th through 12th who love math. Each week students will meet with mathematical professionals in an informal setting to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics. The instructors are mathematicians, scientists and engineers who use math every day and many of them have their PhD in math. Math Circles are designed to be interactive and focus on problem solving. The topics covered in a Math Circle are not normally included in the standard classroom curriculum. If you or a student you know might be interested you can download and share one of our informational fliers in either English or Spanish. You can learn more about math circles at the National Association of Math Circles website.
