Math Circles

Math Circles are for students with long attention spans who enjoy engaging in mathematical conversation. Students will learn to collaborate with others while developing and defending their mathematical ideas. Our pedagogy is based on the approach used in the Boston Math Circle.

Math Circles are programs for students who love math and want a challenge. Students should have long attention spans and should be eager to have a discussion about mathematical ideas with like-minded peers.

If you are interested in joining a Math Circle, please contact the Riverbend Community Math Center.

Interim Semester

The Euler Math Circle

Time: 4 to 5 PM
Typical Age: 9 to 15 years old
Named for: Leonhard Euler (1707–1783).

During these interim classes, we will be reviewing content discussed during the spring of 2014 (Understanding Euler's Formula: an introduction to algebra, trigonometry, and calculus) on the dates below.

Classes are held at the Charles Martin Youth Center at 802 Lincolnway West.

Spring 2015

During the spring of 2015, Riverbend Community Math Center is offering three Math Circles. These classes will meet during the following Mondays. Class times and descriptions are below.

Classes are held at the Charles Martin Youth Center at 802 Lincolnway West.

The Wallis Math Circle

Time: 2:30 to 3:30 PM
Typical Age: 4 to 7 years old
Named for: John Wallis (1616–1703)

The Boole Math Circle

Time: 2:30 to 3:30 PM
Typical Age: 7 to 11 years old
Named for: George Boole (1815–1864), Mary Everest Boole (1832–1916), and Alicia Boole Stott (1860–1940)

Students in this group should know how to add and subtract fairly well, and may be working on multiplication, division, and fractions.

The Euler Math Circle

Time: 4 to 5 PM
Typical Age: 9 to 15 years old
Named for Leonhard Euler (1707–1783)

Join us as we explore Fermi questions, play with bizarre mathematical systems, and investigate calculus and physics. Students in this group should have mastery over elementary level mathematics including multiplication, division, and fractions. Students in this group must be enthusiastic about discussing abstract mathematical ideas.
