Mobile Math Circle

Mobile Math Circle in action
Welcome to the Mobile Math Circle!  Please come and join us.  All high school and middle school students are invited.

The Mobile Mathematics Circle is a weekly gathering of students of high school and middle school age guided by professional mathematicians. It is designed for students who enjoy math and want the challenge of exciting problems that are normally outside the school curriculum.

The Mobile Mathematics Circle belongs to the great tradition of Mathematics Circles which started in Hungary more than a century ago and has grown stronger worldwide every year.

The activities of the Mobile Math Circle are sponsored by the Alabama Space Grant Consortium and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of South Alabama.

New students are welcome. Sessions are free for all students.

The Circle meets Mondays from 7 PM until 8 PM.  In order to participate in our weekly meetings you need to register online.
