The Texas A&M Math Circle was founded in 2011 by Dr. Phil Yasskin, Dr. Frank Sottile, and Dr. Alex Sprinston. From 2011 to 2014 the Math Circle only supported students in 5th-8th grade. In 2015, due to demand, the Math Circle expanded to support High School Students. At this point the Math Circle split into 3 groups based on the students' mathematical backgrounds.
