Many students aren’t fortunate enough to live near a thriving math circle (much less the two that we have in Dallas, Metroplex Math Circle and the Mid Cities Math Circle).  To address this need an entrepreneurial young man in Wichita Falls, Shri Ganeshram, has launched the Online Math Circle.

Shri was assisted in this effort by Holden Lee and Marius Craciunoiu.  He also received some of his inspiration from our own Dr. Titu Andreescu while attending AwesomeMath.

Please help Shri by visiting and helping to promote his site.

There was a great article today on Dr. Andreescu’s summer camp, AwesomeMath.  Here is an excerpt.

UTD program challenges the best and brightest young mathletes

For the select group of academically gifted middle and high school students training intensively this summer at the University of Texas at Dallas, math is a sport.

The problems they work in geometry, algebra, combinatorics and number theory far exceed the curriculum used at Texas high schools.

“These are the athletes of the mind,” said Titu Andreescu, 53, director of the three-week AwesomeMath program. “Most of them are a lot better than students in college, including math majors.”

The results of the 2008 AMC 8 contest have been reported.  Many of our Math Circle students participated and distinguished themselves this year.  Several North Texas schools also stood out with the sum of their top 3 scores exceeding 66 (out of 75):

  • Hockaday
  • McLean Middle School (Fort Worth)
  • Rice Middle School (Plano)
  • Robinson Middle School (Plano)
  • St. Mark’s School of Texas
  • Testbrain Prep Center (Coppell)

Unfortunately too many schools still do not offer this important contest.  Please start now to lobby your own school system to not only offer the AMC 8 but to help students prepare for it.

Here is a distribution of scores on the 25 point test.

UT Dallas

Participants in the Metroplex Math Circle are very grateful for the extensive support they receive from the University of Texas at Dallas. Some of UTD’s founding principles help to explain why it is such a perfect home for one of the country’s leading Math Circles.

In 1969 the University’s founders argued that “to grow industrially, the region (Texas) must grow academically; it must provide the intellectual atmosphere which will allow it to compete in the new industries dependent on highly trained and creative minds.” With this charge in mind, UT Dallas’ mission statement charges the university to serve “the Metroplex and the State of Texas as a global leader in innovative, high quality science, engineering, and business education and research.”

As the Metroplex Math Circle enters its 3rd year hosted by the University of Texas at Dallas, we are excited to announce this new site which will provide students with information about upcoming sessions.

Metroplex Math Circle was founded by Dr. Titu Andreescu and is one of his many initiatives to improve the level of mathematical problem solving in the Metroplex, in the US and in the world.

In its first 3 years the Metroplex Math Circle has brought to our region world renowned mathematicians and helped dozens of students explore their love of math and improve their performance in national math competitions.
