Journal of Math Circles

Journal of Math Circles (JMC) offers high-quality, practitioner-focused resources for outreach leaders through the dissemination of local knowledge to the broader mathematical community. Articles are authored by and for mathematics professionals, including K-12 teachers, who organize a wide range of community-responsive outreach programs across the globe.

JMC seeks articles capturing best practices for outreach and professional development activities that align with Math Circle core values: exploring worthwhile mathematical tasks, fostering problem-solving habits of mind, and building communities of mathematical thinkers and problem solvers. Papers offering thorough, evidence-based reflective commentary of implementation are welcome. Manuscripts may be submitted in one of three areas:

  • Lesson Plans. These papers are intended to support leaders of a session or progression of sessions.
  • Outreach Programs. These papers are intended to support individuals or organizations in starting or sustaining outreach programs.
  • Professional Development. These papers are intended to support leaders of K-12 teacher professional development.

JMC publishes articles on a rolling basis with special issues on themed topics. All papers are rigorously reviewed using a double-blind peer-review process.

Math Circles Library

In the interest of fostering a greater awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life, MSRI and the AMS are publishing books in the Mathematical Circles Library series as a service to young people, their parents and teachers, and the mathematics profession.

The books in the series are suitable for leaders and participants in mathematical circles. Parents of the participants in the student circles will also find the books quite useful. The books come from several sources: translations of suitable books from Russian or Eastern European sources, books written in English for this audience, and practical books for and written by organizers of mathematical circles. The series is co-published by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute and the American Mathematical Society. (ISSN 1944-8074) Softcover.
