Math Circles for Fall 2022.

Math Circles

Math Circles is an outreach program of the Department of Mathematics at Brigham Young University. Its goal is to give students in grades K-12 a chance to learn, explore, and have fun learning about mathematics and its uses. We offer free classes taught by either BYU faculty and/or students. In all, there are four classes based on age (see below). Typically, these are held almost every week from 9:00-9:50 AM in the Talmage Building (TMCB) on BYU’s campus.

Age Groups and Classes:

Grades K-3, Room TMCB 154: Here the goal is to have as much fun as possible learning new types of math. Parents are asked to attend with their children for this age group.

Grades 4-6, Room TMCB 173: In this class students have fun learning and exploring new math. Sixth-graders can choose either the 4-6 class or the 6-8 class.

Grades 6-8, Room TMCB 197: This class is a more advanced version of the 4-6 class in which students learn and practice math with the main goal of encouraging students to enjoy math. Sixth-graders may choose either the 4-6 class or the 6-8 class.

Grades 9-12, Room TMCB 203: In this class, students learn about math topics that are typically introduced in college courses. Enjoying and having fun with math is still the primary aim.

Dates and Times: (Fall 2022)

Math Circles will begin on Saturday, September 17, 2022.
