The Metroplex Math Circle meets in room 2.201 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.

## Eligibility

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.

## Mission

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

on September 16, 2008 at 2:24 pm |Tracey HurstI have some advanced math teachers in Richardson ISD that would like to attend – probably not on a regular basis, but when it fits into their schedule. From what I read, this looks like it is acceptable. If not, please let me know. Thanks.

on September 16, 2008 at 9:17 pm |metroplexmathcircleYes, please encourage them to come. The first meeting of each semester should be of particular interest to teachers and parents.

The format of MMC allows for visitors to come to particular meetings or parts of meetings as their schedules allow.

on November 24, 2008 at 6:42 pm |metroplexmathcircleIt looks like the AMC 8 can be administered through the first week of December so I wouldn’t expect results back until the middle of the month at least. Here is the AMC web page: http://www.unl.edu/amc/e-exams/e4-amc08/amc8.shtml

on April 23, 2012 at 9:45 am |CameronMy son is in second grade. He has strong interest in Math. Do you know any campus that offers Math club for younger age (8 years old)? Thank you.

on April 23, 2012 at 12:19 pm |Metroplex Math CircleCameron, your son wouldn’t be the only elementary age student visiting Metroplex Math Circle, but I’m not aware of any local clubs that cater to that age range. Online you may want to check out the new site by Art of Problem Solving called Beast Academy (http://beastacademy.com/)

on October 20, 2015 at 8:44 am |Deepa KurupHello we are new to Texas, and are interested for our 6th grader to participate in enrichment and challenging activities. Will he benefit from coming to your sessions? What days/ times, and fees if any? What is the format of the sessions? (instructor led?)

on August 14, 2016 at 11:41 am |Agnibho RoyHello, I am going to be a junior and want to find some good training for the AIME to get into USAMO so I was wondering if this would be a good place for me to go to hone my skills. Also, is there any cost for attending the circles or signing up or do I just go to the session directly?
