TAMU Math Circle is a joint project between the Departments of Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University. We meet in the Blocker Building at Texas A&M on Saturdays, 2:00- 5:00 pm, almost every week during the Fall and Spring semesters. 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. The goal is to get the students excited about the mathematics, giving them a setting that encourages them to become passionate about mathematics. TAMU Math Circle is jointly organized by Drs. Yasskin, Yu, and Jung from the Math Department and Dr. Sprintson from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. The circle is directed to gifted students in grades 5-12.
There are two components to our activities, discovery or interactive exploration of mathematical ideas and concepts, and problem-solving classes.
The discovery-based activities run from 2:00 to 4:00, and are followed by the problem-solving classes from 4:00 to 5:00. In both, the students are in three classes, based on their mathematical level.
Students may participate in either of these components, or in both.
