# UNIVERSITY OF UTAH MATH CIRCLE

**We are happy to announce that the Math Circle will run in school year 2019-2020!**

In the late 90's, a small network of extracurricular programs called Math Circles
gradually began to spring up in various places around the country. These programs,
based partly on a model developed in Eastern Europe, focused on the process of discovery
and open-ended exploration, and were designed to introduce students to the deeper
kinds of mathematical thinking that are invariably absent in most standard curricula.
The University of Utah Math Circle, now in its fifteenth year, is one of the best
established Math Circles in the country.

In addition to encountering exciting material far beyond that treated in a regular
classroom, students joining The Math Circle have the unique opportunity to interact
with professional mathematicians in an informal setting. Thanks to the generous support
of the National Science Foundation, the Department of Mathematics, and the EnergySolutions
Foundation, there is no cost to participate in the Math Circle.

# 2019 - 2020 Math Circle will begin September 11, 2019

Please note; both the room number and meeting day have changed from Fall semester.

The Utah Math Circle is made possible, in part, by support from:

- Energy Solutions Foundation
- The National Science Foundation
- The Department of Mathematics

Math Circle is a free program for all participants. The support of individual donors is vital to continuing this program. Donated funds will go towards supplies, books, and refreshments for participants.

Your donation also shows federal agencies and private foundations the support Math Circle has in the greater Salt Lake community. Your gesture can have a big impact on Math Circle's ability to secure funding from these organizations.

Donations can be made in any amount. Donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes from the University of Utah's Development Office.

The best place to learn about the Math Circle community is at the website of the National Association of Math Circles. By registering for an account on the NAMC website, you will have access to a wide variety of interesting problems and other resources.
