About Us

The TAMU Math Circle is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M University.  Mathematical Circles are a form of education enrichment and outreach that bring students into direct contact with mathematical professionals in an informal setting to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics. Our goal is to get students excited about mathematics by creating fun and casual environment that allows them to engage with mathematics outside of how they normally would in the classroom. The TAMU Math Circle is jointly organized by Drs. Yasskin, Yu, Gong, Liu, Wang, and Weeks from the Math Department.  This program is directed at gifted students in grades 5-12.

There are two primary components to our activities: Discovery sessions, where students engage in fun, interactive explorations of mathematical ideas and concepts, and Problem Solving classes aimed at preparing students for national competitions.  Students may participate in one or both of these components.  Here is our Saturday schedule:

Each is offered at three levels:

All 6 groups are meeting in person with the exception of the Advanced Problem Solving group, which is meeting in a hybrid form (both in-person and online via Zoom). For information on attending the Advanced Problem Solving group via Zoom, please contact Guoliang Yu <guoliangyu@tamu.edu>.

In-person events will take place on the first floor of the Blocker building. Drop-off and pick-up will be inside of Room 128.

The levels are only guidelines and frequently are different from the  student's school grade level.  Each student may pick which group to attend and can change at any time. If you have any questions about which level is right for your child, please contact Phil Yasskin <yasskin@tamu.edu>.  We want your child to receive the the best experience possible from our Math Circle and we are always open to adjusting their level according to their needs.
