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.
