What is a Math Circle?
A mathematics circle is an innovative and exciting way for students and professors to come together to learn mathematics, explore new topics, interact with other students who share their interest in mathematics, and have fun. There are mathematics circles all over the world and now there is one in Stony Brook University!
How does it work?
Students will come to Stony Brook University on Saturdays for a three hour program where they will explore a variety of mathematical areas that will teach them about applied mathematics. They will work individually or in groups on projects that will further their understanding of the topic.
