Math Circles for students bring K-12 students together with mathematically sophisticated leaders in an informal setting, after school or on weekends, to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics. Math Circles combine significant content with settings that encourage a sense of discovery and excitement about mathematics through problem-solving and interactive exploration. Ideal problems are low-threshold, high-ceiling; they offer a variety of entry points and can be approached with a minimal mathematical background, but lead to deep mathematical concepts and can be connected to advanced mathematics.

The Wichita State University Math Circle Circle exists to keep young people interested in mathematics and let them explore and enjoy new topics. Math Circles (facebook) bring mathematicians and mathematical scientists into direct contact with pre-college students --currently 6th through 9th grade students. Students and parents meet with math professionals in an informal and supervised setting to work on interesting problems and topics in mathematics. The goal is to get students excited and passionate about mathematics.
Math Circle meets on Sundays from 2:00-3:00 pm on the Wichita State Main Campus, in Jabara Hall, room 372. You should park in Lots 13 and 15.
K-12 Students Get a Taste of Nitrogen in Their Ice Cream during Math Circle
|Professor Elizabeth Behrman demonstrates what happens when you pour liquid nitrogen on a balloon to K-12 students involved in Math Circle. Math Circle was a group that met up on Sundays to help instill the love of math and math-related subjects in younger generations.
