Mathematical circles are weekly gatherings of students of high school age or younger working on problems involving complex and advanced topics, guided by mathematicians and educators. The motivation for this program is to increase the interest and enjoyment of mathematics among bay area students who learn to provide structured solutions to thought-provoking problems.
Unfortunately the 2012 fall semester of the San Jose Math Circle is completely full and we have a waiting list. It is possible a few places will open later in the semester or for the spring 2013 semester. If spaces become available we will put and announcement on our website and send an update to our e-mail list.
