We have created this circle to expose kids to the uniquely challenging world of math.
The program will ignite an advanced, unusual, non-standard, and creative approach to mathematical thinking. Math Circle is designed to promote enthusiasm and positive attitude towards mathematics, and to stimulate interest in the deeper study of math.
We hope that this club will show students that mathematical competitions are just as intense and prestigious (if not more so), than athletic ones.
Each of the classes in the series covers a new topic, but the whole series is built up to increase thinking abilities step by step. Your child can attend individual classes. However, we strongly encourage that your child attends all classes in the series.
These classes will be very interesting and engaging with a lot of brainstorming and team work, but they will also be very intellectually demanding.
