This semester, we will have 3 meetings per week. All are in Brownson Hall, Room 14, on the campus of Manhattanville College
1. Beginner class. 4:20-5:20 on Wednesdays.
Some common topics that tend to appear in math circles will be covered for beginners, or those needing a refresher.
2. Interactive recreational math presentation. 5:30-6:50 on Wednesdays.
This is our main program! We look for topics that are not usually covered in the standard math curriculum. Pizza will be served.
3. Advanced Contest Math Training Sessions. 1:00-3:00 on Sundays.
Professor Henry Ricardo will be leading problem solving sessions, each revolving around a given technique.
The problems will range in difficulty from AMC 12 to USAMO, including material relevant to PUMAC and HMMT. We recommend that participants be reasonably proficient in AMC 10/12.
All of our meetings are free of charge. All of our meetings are open to the public, and all are welcome.
