# Riverbend Math Circles at Notre Dame

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
by Bob and Ellen Kaplan 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.

## Spring 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 Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. in Pasquerilla Center (the
ROTC building) at Notre Dame from January 29th through April 22nd. We
will not meet March 11th, April 1st, or April 8th. On April 29th, families will
meet in Jordan Hall of Science for our end of semester poster session.
