UM-Dearborn Math. and Stat. Dept. is pleased to present Maize and Blue Math Circle.

Maize and Blue Math Circle is a weekly activity for motivated high school students to learn and practice more mathematics with their peers and professors from UM-D.

Students interested in problem solving, students wanting to do more mathematics, students wondering how mathematics is used in real life, and students interested in competing for local and national mathematics competitions are welcome to join Maize and Blue Math Circle.

The circle is sponsored by our department, NSF, MSRI and NSA and there is no fee for attendance. Students are expected to register at the website before the first meeting. Teachers and parents are welcome to attend and contribute.

The circle will meet on Tuesdays (starting on September 22) from 4:15pm to 6:00pm. Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.

For more information and registration visit the circle's website.

There are many benefits of being part of a math circle. Students will have direct interaction with professional mathematicians and get a hands-on experience of how mathematics is done and used in real life. Students will participate in specifically designed activities to sharpen their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Students will be informed and trained for regional and national mathematics exams, including prestigious mathematical olympiads. Students will find a friendly place to nurture mathematical talent. The circle is not a standard extracurricular activity or a tutoring session. It is geared toward students who are interested in mathematics and ready to take their training to the next level.
