Graphs, vectors, and matrices! Oh my! If you have a child or student who is interested in deep thinking about all things math, Wichita State University’s Math Circle might be just what they’re looking for.
The program, which is sponsored by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute and the National Security Agency (yes, the NSA), gives students in grades five through nine the opportunity to figure out math puzzles, learn from mathematicians and math scientists, and work on interesting problems and topics in mathematics. Students and parents meet with math professionals in an informal and supervised setting.
Currently, they meet on the Wichita State University campus every Sunday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Jabara Hall. Jabara Hall is across the street from the Shocker residence hall and parking is available in lots 13 or 15.
The WSU Math Circle program is FREE!
If you’re interested in signing your child up for Math Circles, you’ll need to fill out the registration and consent form at the link below and mail it in or bring it with you to your first meeting.
