This is an outreach program for motivated students from elementary to high school who are interested in mathematics.
Math Circles were introduced first in Hungary and other Eastern European countries in order to select gifted in Mathematics middle and high school students and teach them some more advanced topics in Elementary Mathematics. One of the goals was to prepare those students for prestigious math competitions on local, national, and international level. Traditionally, Math Circles are organized and directed by research mathematicians who have been participants in such Circles as students themselves, and have the passion for helping the younger generation broaden their knowledge in more interesting and deep mathematics.
All that the participants of the Math Circles at FIU need to have is math curiosity and the wish to work on mathematical problems.
