Classes

This year, we decided to split the group into two sessions: Session I and Session II. More information can be found below.

Session I will focus on logical thinking and problem solving, while Session II will focus on competition math preparation. Students may attend either one or both sessions.

There is no tuition fee for either class.

Both classes meet in the Cooper Room (upstairs) of the Brookings Public Library.


Brookings Math Circle is free and will always be.

Session I: Sundays 1:30-3:30

Once a week for 2 hours, 4 weeks from 6/10 to 7/1.

  • This session will consist of multiple games, contests, and learning opportunities to sharpen your problem solving, logic, and, of course, math abilities.
  • Everything in this session will be linked to mathematics or logic in some way, although contest math is not the emphasis. Even though this session does not directly focus on contest math, but being able to problem solve is critical in every math competition, and we have designed this session to be extremely engaging, fun, and challenging.
  • This session is for students who want to try challenging problems, explore unique and fun math, build teamwork and friendship, or improve logical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Bring a pencil, 1 subject notebook, calculator (any type), a good attitude, and a willingness to learn.
  • We will provide all other necessary materials.

session ii: Saturdays 10-12

Once a week for 2 hours, 4 weeks from 8/19 to 9/8.

  • These classes will be self paced, as we know students have different levels of experience with competition math.
  • This session is for students who want to try challenging contest math problems, prepare for advanced middle school and high school competitions like the MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10/12, or enhance problem solving skills.
  • Bring a pencil, 1 subject notebook, calculator (any type), a good attitude, and a willingness to learn.
  • We will provide practice tests, handouts, and homework problems to all the students who attend.
