Southern Nevada

Teachers' Math Circle

The Southern Nevada Teachers' Math Circle is an exciting program that aims to engage teachers and mathematicians in working together on intriguing and stimulating problems. Through this collaborative process, we seek to provide teachers with an opportunity to enrich their knowledge and appreciation of mathematics. We feel that problem-solving abilities and critical thinking engender success in many fields, and that promoting these abilities in teachers will, in turn, foster them in their students.

The Teachers' Math Circle will meet four times during the academic year. The three-hour meetings will begin with a dinner and an opportunity to socialize informally. The plates will be cleared and the mathematics will begin. The topics covered will be carefully selected for their mathematical depth, but also for their accessibility; no mathematical prerequisites are necessary.
