About: The SFMC Elementary Math Circle is an alternative math enrichment program designed to develop a positive attitude towards mathematics by introducing young children to elements of mathematical culture.  We carefully select and train mathematicians who have the capacity to gracefully and compassionately share their enthusiasm for mathematics with children.  Our instructors lead engaging mathematical activities on topics chosen from higher mathematics including number theory, game theory, combinatorics, probability and statistics, abstract algebra and topology.  To learn more, please view our video.


Spring 2019 Clarendon Math Circle Program Details


Class Levels

We have 2nd-3rd grade circles, 4th-5th grade circles and 4th-6th grade circles (called Mixed Age Math Circles).  The mathematical content is very different from school math and is equally new and stimulating for all students.

Mixed Age Math Circle is the name given to 4th-5th grade circles that are additionally open to 6th graders. The mathematical content and selected activities of the Mixed Age Math Circle sessions and the 4th-5th grades sessions are the same. As in all our programs, adjustments are made to meet the particular needs of each group and to ensure a fun, engaging and mathematically rich experience for all. We note that these changes may or may not be influenced by the participation of older students.

The SFMC Clarendon Math Circle will meet on Thursdays.  The program will run 8 weeks, starting in January and ending in March.   Please note that all dates and times are tentative and subject to change.
