A Math Circle is a small group of young people interested in learning how to solve novel and interesting math problems. Students meet once a week for 90 minutes to practice problem solving and have fun doing math with others interested in math. A Math Circle is not math tutoring or practice for standardized tests. A Math Circle is for students who like learning creative problem-solving techniques and patterns of mathematical thinking associated with math competition problems.
The Cedarville Math Circle is sponsored by the Department of Science and Mathematics of Cedarville University.
