What is a Math Circle?

A Math Circle is a community organization that allows students and leaders to meet in an informal setting to explore an interesting mathematical topic.  The meetings are not sit-down lectures – they are highly interactive, driven by student questions and discoveries, and focused on problem-solving strategies.

Who can attend a FWMC meeting?

The FWMC is open to all middle-school-level students (grades 5-8 or approximately ages 11-15) in or around DFW.

What is the cost to attend a FWMC meeting?

FWMC is free to students.  We do ask, however, that you register your student in advance so we can anticipate the number of attendees at each meeting.
