San Diego Math Circle

The San Diego Math Circle is a consortium of individuals and groups united behind the goal of serving the exceptional educational needs of exceptional mathematics students. SDMC is hosted by the University of California, San Diego, managed by dedicated parent volunteers, and taught by a diverse slate of professionals from the greater San Diego area.

The purpose of SDMC is not only to excel at mathematics, but to develop a broad and deep understanding of how to solve problems. The thought processes developed at the SDMC will help students in any logical endeavor, be it mathematics, science, business, law, etc. Our goal is to teach students how to think creatively and effectively.

SDMC is challenging by design. We believe that students who can solve most of the problems they see are not being challenged enough. We provide hard problems and teach strategies for solving them. In time avid students stretch their problem solving skills while growing in their knowledge of mathematics outside of standard school curricula.
