Spring 2018 Schedule

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.  4:30-5:20 on Wednesdays.  
Some common topics that tend to appear in math circles will be covered for beginners, or those needing a refresher.  These are led by David Brodsky, Eric Brodsky, and Derrick Xiong.

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.
