Let's gather on for a math circle on an imaginary winter island, where where curiosity and creativity dance hand in hand. Here, equations turn into adventures and puzzles into quests. Our young mathematicians will explore the beauty of numbers, patterns, and problem-solving while building snowmen and sipping (imaginary) hot cocoa. Join us for this winter break mathematical adventure.
In this math circle, we will embark on a creative mathematical journey through the cosmos using graphs and other forms of data representation to make sense of what the universe unveils. Focusing on representing and understanding patterns in data, we will embark on a cosmic adventure that unlocks the boundless potential of young learners.
In this Math Circle, we embark on a journey where Titans stories serve as the backdrop for developing creative thinking having to do with mathematical patterns and structures. Participants will explore simple and complex patterns, including sequences, tessellations and arrays, while nurturing their creative problem-solving abilities.
Adding numbers is fun. What would happen if we added an infinite sequence of numbers? That seems like a lot of work... can we use our clever brains to find out what would happen without actually doing the adding? Will the numbers always keep getting bigger, or can we find an infinite sequence of numbers that stops getting bigger? What happens if we multiply numbers instead?! What if we added infinity to infinity?!?! The possibilities are infinite!
Cryptarithmetics is a branch of recreational mathematics where letters or symbols represent digits of a mathematical puzzles or equations. In this circle we will be solving and creating these puzzles, developing pattern-recognition and problem-solving skills, while embarking on an adventure of deep mathematical exploration.
Quadratics can be used to show any number of things: area, trajectory of a ball toss, the curve of a lens or satellite dish. In this math circle, we will investigate quadratic equations examining the properties of the curve, the how to tell if a table of numbers will be quadratic, and discover different ways to create equations to create quadratics. No prior knowledge of quadratics is necessary, but an understanding of variables is important.
Logic puzzles are a popular and satisfying way to practice deductive reasoning, whether they are in newspapers, books, or apps. In this circle, we will focus on puzzles using arithmetic clues where we can make mathematical deductions and practice using number facts. We will investigate how the puzzles work, when they are impossible or uniquely solvable, and create our own to share.
Polynomials are certain algebraic expressions that can be added or multiplied together. Depending on which world of numbers we use, we will find polynomials may split into parts, factoring into smaller polynomials like a composite number factors into primes. In this circle, we will investigate polynomials and discover the new worlds of numbers they can lead us to.
Join us as we embark on a quest to discover unique properties of numbers and unveil the secrets behind numerical enigmas. We will identify special numbers that can always be composed as sums of two, three and four consecutive numbers, and discover truths about sequences and number patterns. Join us as we seek answers to interesting questions and unlock related inquiries that will ignite your curiosity about the mystical world of numbers.
In this winter break circle, we'll delve into combinatorics, discovering whether arrangements are strictly finite or if they might unfurl into the realm of infinity. Together, we'll investigate the notion of superior combinations and contemplate whether or not there exists a best arrangement. Join us on this mathematical journey of discovery and possibility!
Squares appear simple, but there is more to them than meets the eye. Adding square numbers together, we will explore a range of mathematics from the Pythagorean Theorem to modular arithmetic and even imaginary numbers! Who knew that this regular quadrilateral could make us question everything we know about math?
Let's reshape our idea of what it means to be square. In this circle, we will explore these beautiful shapes and deeply explore their intricacies. Who knew that this regular quadrilateral could make us question everything we think we know about math?
Using a simple sheet of paper, we can discover a lot about volume. We will explore and create 3-dimensional models with paper, and investigate the patterns these models represent in terms of optimizing volume and formulating equations based on our findings. This circle will look at both the geometric and algebraic elements involved. This circle provides an inclusive, supportive math exploration space for girls.
This math circle will explore Euclidean geometry problems involving a finite number of points in the plane. Participants will work on a problem that baffled mathematicians for centuries, find the answer, and develop a proof that shows their answer is correct.

Prepare for a mathematical journey in the magical realm of Dragon's Land! We will delve deep into the mathematical world of these dragons. We will unveil the secrets of dragon hatchlings' growth rates, discover how their age relates to their size, and even delve into the intriguing realm of dragon hoards and their treasure-to-treasure ratio. Expand your understanding of ratios and unleash your inner dragon enthusiast with us! The first section of this course is not a prerequisite for the second.
Discover the underlying principles guiding successful gameplay and gain insights into the rationale behind their effectiveness. In this circle, we will explore the how and the why different strategies work for playing games. We will think about how to predict how others will play, and how to shift our own strategies accordingly. Through both collaborative and competitive games, we will use logic and game theory to uncover the optimal way to engage in games. This circle will revisit concepts from When Game Theory Meets Graph Theory but can be taken without it.
You may have heard of square numbers or triangular numbers, but did you know every counting number has a shape? Some numbers have many shapes, some only have a few. We will look for different types of shapes, search for patterns in them, and figure out what they can tell us about the numbers.
Prime numbers are just obscure mathematical ideas, but have real-world applications! This class explores some of these application. Join us as we explore cryptography, algorithms, and more! We will leave no stone unturned in our quest to understand, appreciate, and harness the mysteries and potentials of prime numbers.
