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 6-8 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.

Where and when does the FWMC meet?

We meet approximately once per month during the academic year on Saturday mornings.  Our meetings are held on the Texas Christian University campus.  Click “FOLLOW” on the side panel to get emails about upcoming meetings as they are posted!

Who leads the FWMC?

The FWMC was founded by a group of faculty members in the TCU Math Department.  The meetings are led by TCU faculty and students and other members of the mathematical community.

How can I help the FWMC?
