# Riverbend Math Circles at Notre Dame

Math Circles are free and open to all students in Pre-K through 12th grade who love
math and want a challenge. Math Circles are an opportunity to discuss mathematical
ideas with like-minded peers. Our pedagogy is based on the approach used in by
Bob and Ellen Kaplan in the Boston Math Circle.

## Fall 2024

Faculty and students from Notre Dame partner with Riverbend Community Math Center to
offer Math Circles for four different age ranges. All Math Circles will meet on
Mondays from 5 to 6 p.m. in Pasquerilla Center (the ROTC building) at Notre Dame from
September 16th through December 9th. We will not meet October 21st during Notre
Dame's fall break, and families will meet in Jordan Hall of Science for our end of
semester poster session on December 9th.
