Dougherty Math Circle

Host Institution: Dougherty Valley High School
City: San Ramon
State: CA – California
A Math Circle is a program where students work in groups and collaborate on mathematical ideas not commonly taught in school or in a different perspective than commonly taught. Our program primarily emphasizes the fact that math is a story, not an end. Every theorem has its own story behind it — a proof. When students learn to treat math as a story and not a book of facts, they develop thinking skills that can never be learned so masterfully otherwise. In order to strengthen your students’ understanding of mathematics, or open the subject in a new light to them, make sure to sign up today! All proceeds generated from these programs go to non-profit organizations benefiting the education of underprivileged children including our partners Eden Housing.
