The Waterloo Math Circles is a free weekly enrichment activity for grade 6 to 12 students organized by the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Waterloo.
All Math Circle students will now be required to register in order to attend. Registration for 2012/13 is now closed. Registration for 2013/14 will be done here online and will open on September 20, 2013. The number of available spaces will be limited and those spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. There will still be no cost to attend Math Circles.
All students, old and new to the Math Circle program, will need to register in the Fall of 2013.Addition of a new evening: The Grade 6 and the Grade 7/8 Math Circle rooms will now be offered on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings each week. Tuesday night’s presentations will be repeated on Wednesday night. Students wishing to join the Grade 6 or the Grade 7/8 room will be required to choose between attending on Tuesday night each week, or on Wednesday night each week. This selection will be made during the registration process.
Math Circles material, including presentation outlines and homework assignments, will be posted weekly.
The meetings are accessible to interested students from grades 6 to 12. Students choose a room based on their grade level and/or mathematical ability. There are four rooms to choose from: grade 6, grades 7 & 8, grades 9 & 10, grades 11 & 12.
Math Circles will meet every Tuesday evening (Grade 6 and Grade 7/8 rooms only) and Wednesday evening (all 4 rooms), 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., from October 8/9 to November 26/27, 2013 and again from February 4/5 to April 1/2, 2014. There will be no meetings on March 11/12, 2014 (March Break).Room Assignments for the Fall session will be posted here at the end of September, 2013.
All buildings are on the University of Waterloo's main campus.

Pre-registration is NOW required. The number of spaces available is limited. There is still no fee to participate.
The sessions are devoted to solving problems and to learning techniques that can be useful for mathematics competitions like those the CEMC is involved in. The sessions are coordinated by Mike Eden from the Faculty of Mathematics, with the help of a variety of mathematicians from the University of Waterloo. In order to ensure an understanding of the material being presented, students are strongly encouraged to solve the homework problems. While Math Circles is open to all interested students, we would expect that the students attending come prepared to participate and work on the evening's tasks.
In the case of extreme weather conditions, please check here for an announcement regarding whether or not Math Circles has been cancelled for the evening.
