Colorado Math Circle

The Colorado Math Circle offers math enrichment to high school and middle school students interested in expanding their knowledge of mathematics. Through math talks and problem solving sessions, students learn about number theory, geometry, graph theory, combinatorics, knot theory, olympiad problems, and many other topics. In a collaborative group setting, math enthusiasts have an opportunity to meet others who share their love of mathematics.

Each year the math circle also sponsors and trains the thirty-member Colorado ARML Team, which competes against regional high school teams from around the country in the national ARML Competition at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

Math circle alumni have won numerous national honors, including the Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize for outstanding research in mathematics, National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, Rhodes Scholarship, Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, Alice Schafer Prize for excellence in mathematics by undergraduate women, and William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition top five ranking.

Meetings take place on the CU-Boulder campus.

This is a public program. For more information, please visit the program website.
