Westchester Area Math Circle (WAMC) is a free math circle started in 2012. In 2013, it moved to Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY and is organized by Professor Paul Ellis. We host a variety of free meetings and classes throughout the year. See our Schedule page for a list of upcoming topics and guest speakers.

Questions? Email paulellis@paulellis.org

In addition to our various free workshops and classes, we send teams from our middle/high school participants to area math competitions, including the Harvard-MIT Math Contest, the Princeton University Math Competition, the Exeter Math Club Competition, and the American Regions Math League.

Details about joining these teams are sent over the email list, but you may also email paulellis@paulellis.org with specific questions.

A note about age.

We are often asked what ages our math circle meetings are for. We believe that math is for people of all ages. There is a hidden assumption in our society that doing math is 'only for kids' or 'for school.' We disagree. Everyone, even adults, is allowed to have fun doing math. Nevertheless, some things, like our Advanced Contest Math Class, assume some level of knowledge. Let the topics be the guide.
