Due to pandemic-related restrictions at American University, we will remain online this fall. We will meet on certain Thursdays from 6:30 to 7:30pm, but we don’t yet know precisely which Thursdays. Stay tuned!
Hello and Happy New Year! We have exciting news – DC Math Circle will return for Spring 2021! We plan to have five virtual sessions on the following Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30 PM ET: February 9, February 23, March 9, March 23, and April 6.
Registration is open and space is limited, so please register soon and only if the student(s) you are registering will be able to attend most sessions. Please register by following the link here. Just as a reminder, DC Math Circle is designed to bring together students who are excited about mathematics to solve challenging problems and not designed for remediation. You can review more about math circles and our program here.
We will follow up with all registered students early next week about collecting program forms and donations, or to let you know the student is on the wait list in the case that the program is full. If you have a student who is unable to attend this semester but is interested in future offerings, please fill out the registration form and let us know this.
Looking forward to another great DC Math Circle season!
Jaime, Jeff, Michael, and Abby
Although we did not publicize them here, we held pop-up online events in June and October. Thanks to all who participated, and a special thanks to our session leaders: Amanda Burcroff (Cambridge University) and Mean Michael Keynes (American University). We don’t expect to hold any more events this semester, but we’re hoping to ramp-up our activities somewhat in the spring. In the mean time, the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival and mathcommunities.org continue to offer online programs.
As our regular participants know, we shut down for the season in early March due to safety concerns. Although we are not presently equipped to operate a program online, opportunities are out there. For example, the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival now offers a weekly webinar via Zoom. They meet on Thursdays, and in order to accommodate kids around the world, they have three sessions: 7:00am; noon (in Spanish); and 7:00pm. Each week’s activity is introduced by a video that’s posted a few days in advance. See more information on their front page, or register.
… but you’re welcome to sign up for our e-mail list to get advance notice of our future offerings.
We will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30.
- Start: January 28
- End: March 31
- Skip: February 18.
For more information, go to our registration page.
Registration for our fall 2019 program was briefly open, but we are now full. However, drop-outs do occur, and so we maintain a wait list. If interested in the wait list, or if you simply want advance notice of our future offerings, then please sign up.
We will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 on the American University campus, starting September 10 and ending November 12, or possibly November 19 if we have to cancel any sessions. We will skip October 8. Registered participants will receive more precise location information.
See you next week, February 5.
We’ll be representing math circles at the National Mathematics Festival this May 4! This event is for children and adults of all ages to engage with mathematical discovery. If you attend, feel free to stop by our booth near the Make-or-Take Golden Spiral.
DC Math Circle returns this spring. Although we are full, spaces sometimes open up. To register your child for the wait list, or to express interest in future seasons, go to our registration page.
