BYU Math Circles


Math Circles for Winter 2024.

Math CirclesMath 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 has a dual objective. Some weeks are a more advanced version of the 4-6 grade class with students exploring fun types of math found in nature, science, art, technology, etc. Other weeks students will learn ideas that help in math competitions such as the AMC 8 exam and the Mathcounts competition.

Grades 9-12, Room TMCB 203: The high school group focuses on preparation for competition exams such as AMC 10, AMC 12, and the ARML competition. Enjoying and having fun with math is still the primary aim.

Dates and Times: (Winter 2024)
