# About the Fresno Math Circle

Fresno Math Circle is an enrichment program for students in grades 3-12 interested in mathematics.

The purpose of Fresno Math Circle is to introduce children to interesting mathematical ideas that are not taught in school, work on challenging problems, discuss some important concepts at a greater depth than is usually done in school, develop logic and reasoning skills, and, very importantly, have fun with mathematics and make friends who also like mathematics. The program is free and is open to students in grades 3-12 at public, private, or home schools. If your child wants to learn more mathematics and is ready for some challenges, sign them up for Fresno Math Circle!

In AY 2020-21, we have the following groups: grades 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-12. Grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8 meet every other Saturday from 10:00-11:30 AM. These are taught by mathematics faculty and Fresno State students. Grades 9-12 meet every other Thursday from 5:30-7:30 PM, taught by Fresno State mathematics faculty. In addition, for those interested in competing, we host a few national and local competitions in mathematics problem solving, as well as preparation sessions for them.

The program is currently supported by the San Joaquin Valley Math Project (SJVMP), Fresno State College of Science and Mathematics, Department of Mathematics, and parents' donations. It has also been supported by the Mathematical Association of America (Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants) in the past.
