Through group conversations, students explore, play with, produce examples and counterexamples, make conjectures and discover mathematical insights. Mathematics is explored with low-threshold/high-ceiling mathematical problems outside of the typical math curriculum and discovered in an informal environment.

Contact us for the next AMC Competition to be hosted in-person in the California Bay Area.

The AMC 10 covers the high school curriculum up to 10th grade. Students in grade 10 or below and under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 10. The AMC 12 covers the entire high school curriculum including trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, but excluding calculus. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 12.Students in grade 8 and below, AND under 14.5 years of age on the day of the competition are eligible to participate in the AMC 8.

"Math Circles are places where students and teachers get to engage with mathematically deep content presented in unique ways that promote hands-on discovery. Low-threshold, high-ceiling problems can be approached by students with minimal background but still lead to concepts rooted in advanced mathematics."

“Discussing different approaches to solving problems has broaden my problem solving strategies”

“The games at the end of the session are a driving force for persevering through the hard problems of the Math Circle.”

“A nice break from traditional problems!”

“The logic games are awesome!”

“The Math Festival was a blast! Can we do it more often?”

“Our team had so much fun at the Math Wrangle! Never before had I paid such close attention to someone presenting a solution. If we didn’t, our team wouldn't have good rebuttals.”

“Tackling hard problems together has built my confidence”
