The Metroplex Math Circle meets in room 2.410 of the Engineering and Computer Sciences building on the campus of the University of Texas at Dallas (corner of Rutford and Drive A). Regular sessions are held Saturday afternoons from 2:00 to 4:00. Please see the current year schedule on this website for details on each session.
Metroplex Math Circle is intended primarily for students who are 14 and older and show a strong desire to go beyond a standard high school curriculum. Many of these students will use their experience at MMC to excel in national math competitions or to better prepare them for work at elite universities. Younger students with demonstrated mathematical talents are also welcome to participate in the MMC lectures.
The Metroplex Math Circle is a program designed to attract talented students to mathematics and to provide an accelerated avenue to develop students’ mathematical and problem-solving skills.
Specifically, the goals of the Metroplex Math Circle are:
- To draw students to mathematics and to motivate them to excel in the subject;
- To draw students to the program who are economically disadvantaged and who might otherwise not attend;
- To prepare students for mathematical contests;
- To encourage students to pursue careers linked to mathematics, including careers in science, research, business or academia.
The Metroplex Math Circle will achieve these goals by:
- Exposing middle and high school students to exciting mathematics presented by research mathematicians, mathematics educators and internationally seasoned Olympiad problem-solvers;
- Providing extracurricular opportunities to extend mathematical knowledge and skill well beyond the school curriculum;
- Giving opportunities to students to meet and work with other students of similar or superior math abilities and aspirations;
- Creating a forum for testing students’ math competition skills
