Welcome to the website of the UCSC Math Teachers' Circle.

Enjoy mathematics among other math teachers.  Experience the excitement of learning mathematics content and history in a supportive group.  Gain knowledge and confidence, and rediscover the thrill of learning mathematics for its own sake.

The UCSC Math Teachers' Circle brings together a small group of teachers, once per month, to explore a math problem chosen or developed by a math professor at UC Santa Cruz.  These math problems will be challenging, enjoyable, fascinating, and accessible to those with a knowledge of basic algebra and arithmetic.

Supported by the Monterey Bay Area Mathematics Project.
Part of the American Institute of Mathematics network of Math Teachers' Circles.


  • Successful start! It was a great pleasure to host the July Kickoff for the Santa Cruz Math Teachers Circle!  Hopefully the success of the past three days will predict success throughout our meetings (once a month) this coming year.  Highlights of the institute:  Lots of Aha moments (like when teachers realized they could compare fractions by using mediants), beautiful mathematical artwork lining the walls, Pythagorean cutting and pasting.  Next meeting in the evening on September 14 - mark your calendar!
