Are there any math prerequisites?

Nope! We design content for all levels.

Is Brookings Math Circle right for me?

I am going to enter grades 2-5 this fall. Can I join?

At this point, we have no plans to offer any classes to students who are entering grades 2-5. If you would like to study on your own, Beast Academy ( is a good resource to start learning competition math early.

I am going to enter grades 6-8 this fall.

We highly encourage you to join BMC! The more exposure to problem solving and math, the more improvement and fun!

I have little to no math contest experience.

That's okay! Our classes are designed for all levels, and many students who attend BMC have little to no prior math contest experience.

I am going to enter grades 9-12 this fall.

While in the past we have only taught students entering grades 6-8 in the fall, we would welcome all interested high schoolers. Additionally, if you are interested in a teacher-assistant like position, contact us!

I have questions or I'm still unsure.

Feel free to contact us. :)

Why should I register?

You can definitely drop in at any time during the summer, but we would still like everyone interested in Brookings Math Circle classes this summer to register.

Through the registration form, we gain contact information and knowledge about class sizes. We will need contact information when sending confirmation emails and other information before classes begin, and weekly update emails in the summer. Class sizes are important because that way we will know about how many handouts, homework sheets, mock tests, etc. to print out.

If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us!

Brookings Math Circle is free and always will be.
