We wonder why math is feared in America but not in other countries. It ties into a much deeper, global problem of how can one inspire? The bigger problem is that a precedent has already been set, the bar is set and is WAY TOO LOW, so it’s up to people like us to do it, but we can’t do it alone. That is how I see the Math Circles in a nutshell.

Many people ask me, “What is Math Circle like?” It can be hard to sum up the nuances and multifaceted nature of SF Math Circle, to explain what actually happens. What is the magical ingredient in the spice? To explain that is a near impossible task. Enter some of our wonderful volunteers who want to share their experience with you!

The solution to this problem was sent by Everett, a student who participated in our Elementary program.

The way Everett did his work by numbering all the letter. He had 2 path ways to go after 26 letter of message. He could number 27 or go back to number 1. For letter number 1 of letter U, he went back 1 letter and it was T. For number 2 of letter j, he went back 2 letters and it was H.

We have lots of cool problems that our instructor Zandra put together for our Resources page! The one below is from the American Mathematics Competitions and also appeared in our January newsletter. The solution is immediately below it, so don't scroll down too far if you want to think about the problem before seeing the solution!

Wow! We had so much fun geeking out with everyone who came to watch Donald in Mathmagic Land and Flatland with us. We enjoyed seeing all the lovely faces who came to support us, watch math on the big screen, and win some geeky prizes. Over 100 people came on January 18th to see mathmagic on the big screen. We are so grateful for the community of students, teachers, parents, and math nerds that love and support SF Math Circle!
