News Flash!

We have received funding for the Fall 2014 SFMC program! We will need to fundraise and collect donations to keep SFMC going in Spring 2015 and beyond. To get involved or stay in touch, please sing-up for our new electronic newsletter here!

The high school/ middle school San Francisco Math Circle programs will return again on Monday, September 15th. This program is very open - any interested student or teacher is welcome to join. Simply contact Co-Director Addie Evans, and she will send you the paperwork.

The Elementary program, for 2nd-5th graders, is very high in demand and we invite students to interview by a random draw form our lottery. We have already drawn names for Fall 2014. Occassionally, we have a few seats open up for the Spring 2015. If you are interested in signing up for the Spring 2015 Lottery, please do so here. We will notify anyone whose name is drawn in late January. If you are interested in signing up for the Fall 2015 Lottery, please do so here. *Please note that we do not yet have funding for the Spring 2015 and beyond. We are actively searching for donors and soliciting donations.

The San Francisco Math Circle is a weekly program for students and their teachers, taking place at the San Francisco locations on Mondays. Each week, several classes meet simultaneously. Math Circle for Students is our program for students in grades 6–10, while Math Circle for Teachers is a for-credit course for the teachers who take their students to the program.
