You are invited to Puzzle Planet, a math circle about algebraic thinking. We will unravel the mysteries and intricacies of algebra, navigating through the terrain of equations, variables, and mathematical patterns. Get ready to engage your mind and unlock the secrets that the Puzzling Planet holds for those eager to delve into the realm of mathematical wonders.
Welcome to the enchanting Shape's Island, a magical realm where every geometric form possesses its own special powers. In our circle, we are set to embark on a journey to unravel the wonders of geometry, delving into the intricate and fascinating world of shapes and their unique attributes. Together, we will navigate through the mysteries that make this island a captivating place of exploration and discovery. Get ready to unlock the secrets of geometry in a truly magical setting!
Odds and evens seem like a very simple concept, but there is some deep mathematical exploration lying just below the surface! Join us in exploring parity puzzles involving number theory, combinatorics, and a world of other possibilities!
Some classic problems in the field of Combinatorics have to do with dominoes, and different ways to arrange them. In this math circle, these and similar puzzles will ask us to count — and prove that we’ve counted — the seemingly uncountable.
Join us as we explore the fun, useful, and slightly weird realm of modular arithmetic: a type of math where 8, 14, 20, and 656 are secretly all the same number! We'll gradually unravel the mysteries of this bizarre system, by solving increasingly challenging problems.
Water is gradually added to a bucket until it reaches capacity and pours most of its contents into the next bucket. In this circle, we will investigate what happens in this system of buckets over time, looking for patterns that explain when each bucket tips. There is deep mathematics here - more than meets the eye!
When we give or get directions to travel, they always start at a known place. But what if we don't know where the traveller is coming from? In this circle, we will explore and create maps that allow us to give universal directions - a list of steps that always end in the same place, no matter where they start.
In this circle, we will uncover some unique properties and patterns of polynomials. We will go between different representations of our multi-variable equations and discover real-world applications for these curvy equations.
This Level 1 special one-session circle is open to children aged 5-7.

Join us in this circle as we embark on a journey to unveil the significance and intricacies within the realm of numbers. This journey will illuminate the various roles numbers play, shaping our thought processes, and influencing addition techniques, such as the outcomes when numbers organize themselves in pairs, threes, and more. Additionally, we will delve into the definition of diverse numerical relationships.
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.
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.
