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 remaining Winter 2020 Math Circles are cancelled.
Registration for Fall 2020 Math Circles will take place online in September. More information will be posted here in early August.
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 levels to choose from: grade 6, grades 7 & 8, grades 9 & 10, grades 11 & 12. Students attend one Math Circle session each week.
Fall 2020 Math Circles will run weekly for 8 weeks in October and November and take place at the University of Waterloo's main campus. More information will be posted in early August.
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 Jen Nelson 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.
Please contact our Math Circles Organizer for further details.
