Stanford Math Circle

Engage challenging math problems with peers on Stanford's campus.

Guided by mathematicians and educators, the Stanford Math Circle offers quarter-long, after-school sessions for local students interested in math currently in elementary, middle, or high-school. The weekly meetings take place on Thursdays on Stanford University’s campus and allow students to supplement their schoolwork and love of math with rigorous, extracurricular math engagement through group work.

What is an enrichment "Circle"?

Circles are weekly gatherings that follow a model of education that emphasizes discussion and group problem solving. Our enrichment circles are evening after-school programs that are meant to supplement students' schoolwork and help students develop the creative and critical problem solving that drives developments in a given field. Because they are held on campus and involve a great deal of group interaction, they are only offered to local students.
