Fairfax Math Circle

Host Institution: George Mason University

The Fairfax Math Circle (FMC) is a math enrichment program that focuses on exploration and problem-solving. It is a program dedicated to providing opportunities for motivated students to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of math. We seek to broaden our students' perception of what it means to do mathematics and to be a mathematician. We provide students with the tools to play with mathematics in a deeper way, and with an environment in which they feel comfortable exploring new and challenging things. We work to expose them to math concepts they would not normally be exposed to in a tradition school setting. FMC is not designed as remedial math program, test prep or competition math.
