Welcome to the
TAMU Math Circle!
Welcome to the TAMU Math Circle!
The Texas A&M Math Circle is an outreach activity that brings 5th - 12th grade students into direct contact with mathematical professionals in an informal setting to work on fun and interesting topics in mathematics. The goal is to help students become passionate about math. Our instructors range from professors and graduate students at Texas A&M to experts from industry, all of whom are eager to share with students their passion for mathematics and its applications.
For the Fall 2023 semester, we will have Saturday meetings on 9/23, 9/30, 10/14, 10/28, 11/11, 11/18, 12/2, and 12/9.
There are two types of sessions being offered:
1:00 - 3:00 Discovery Activity
3:00 - 4:00 Problem Solving
Each is offered at three levels:
Beginner (for those on Pre-Algebra and below)
Intermediate (for those on Algebra 1 and Geometry)
Advanced (for those on Algebra 2 and above)
All 6 groups are meeting in person with the exception of the Advanced Problem Solving group, which will be meeting in a hybrid form, both in-person and on-line via Zoom. For information on attending the Advanced Problem Solving group via Zoom, please contact Kun Wang <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The 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.
