Tufts Math Circle

Tufts Math Circle brings together grade 3-12 students who enjoy thinking about mathematical ideas, problems, and puzzles. Students work in small groups led by a math professor or graduate student from the Tufts Math Department. Together we investigate mathematical questions in the spirit of exploration and inspiration.

Tufts Math Circle will not run during the Fall 2014 term.

Location: Mathematics Department, Tufts University, Medford Campus

* When will I know if I'm accepted to TMC? What if I already missed a few sessions?
TMC is open to all students of grade 3-12. You can join TMC anytime during the semester. Some sessions are harder and some will be easier, depending on the particular topic. Just come to the first meeting that you can make.

* Am I prepared enough for TMC?
We build the sessions to be interactive discussions of exciting math topics that are normally outside the school curriculum. All TMC participants benefit from the circle if they enjoy new ways of thinking and are not afraid to make mistakes.

* How do I get to TMC?
The Bromfield Pearson Hall is located a 15-minute walk from Davis T station. For more information on parking, please visit the Tufts Website: http://publicsafety.tufts.edu/adminsvc/?pid=9

* Is there financial aid for TMC?
The program fee is $225 for Fall 2013. There is financial aid available and please send an email to mathcircle@tufts.edu with a brief statement about why you would like to be considered for financial support. TMC is a nonprofit program that is committed to serve all students who enjoy math and want to investigate more exciting topics outside the school curriculum.

*To pay for the program:
All checks and money orders are due by the second week of the class. They should be made out to "Trustees of Tufts College." The memo line at the bottom left should say "TMC fee" and the student's name and the term (Fall, Spring, Summer).

To help support those who cannot afford to pay the full fee we encourage donations. Checks and money orders for donations should also be made out to "Trustees of Tufts College", but the memo line at the bottom left should say "Tufts Math Circle donation." Donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Please DO NOT make checks out to "Tufts Math Circle".

Checks/money orders for fees can either be brought to the first TMC session, or mailed to:
