Testimonials

My son absolutely loved the class this week. He was so excited by the lesson and couldn’t wait to share the concepts with us that evening. He offered a mini lesson for my husband and me. This feeling of intellectual spark was lovely for us to see as parents.

Thank you to all the teachers, volunteers, and directors for sharing so much of their time, effort, brilliance, and sheer love of math with my kids. When we first started, the math books we used (Saxon) was not very exciting and Math Circle helped to bring math to life for my son. Now our math program at school is much more engaging, but Math Circle still brings fun to the subject...and isn’t it all about the fun??? Math Circle isn’t just the one hour, once a week...it sparks an interest where my kids will think about the topics well beyond the classroom.

Math Circle is a place my son loves...I already knew that. My daughter, on the other hand, didn’t express a great love for math. So while memorizing the multiplication table was not her thing, she is a very logical thinker, a real problem solver. Math Circle has been great for her...that math is not just about lining up decimal points to add them up or remembering to carry the 2...math is really FUN! (There’s that word “fun” again.)

Thank you! We are most grateful for this amazing opportunity.

When my son started going to Math Circle he marveled at how “we don’t do much math there, we just play!” I share his amazement at this group of talented instructors who don’t “teach” math, they teach enthusiasm for math and a whole new way of appreciating the subject.
