The Santa Cruz Math Circle is a weekly math meeting for students in grades 5th to 8th who really 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.
