The Tucson Math Circle
The Tucson Math Circle is a great way for pre-college students to sharpen their problem-solving skills in an informal setting, after school or on weekends. You will work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics with professors and graduate students from the University of Arizona. The goal is to share the excitement about mathematics and learn through fun activities without formal tests and examinations. The circle meets weekly during the semester for an hour and a half at the Institute for Mathematics and Education on the university campus.
The Tucson Math Circle meets every Thursday in room S375 of the ENR2 building (aka, Dennis Deconcini Environment and Natural Resources Phase 2) on campus (map here) from 4:30-6.
- Math Circle 2015-2016 will start soon! The new University of Arizona Minor Policy requires that Math Circle volunteers get background checks, so we are currently waiting for background checks to be processed. As soon as the background checks are processed, we will announce the first day of Math Circle. Contact Megan Stone (contact info below) if you'd like to be on the email list for Math Circle announcements.
