Advanced mathematical ideas

In collaboration with the Poudre School District, the Colorado State University's Department of Mathematics presents Math Circles 2011, Monday, July 11 - Friday, July 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Math Circles 2011 is a week of mathematical exploration and discovery led by Colorado State University mathematicians.  Students entering 8th, 9th, or 10th grades will be attending.

Each morning will begin with a short lecture on the History of Mathematics followed by two, indepth topical lectures and activities. Lunch will be provided Monday through Thursday. Math Circles ends at noon on Friday.

Where it all began

The first Math Circles for girls was held in the summer of 2009 under the direction of the late Daniel Rudolph with assistance from Martha Cranor, a math teacher in the Poudre School District. The success of this event and Professor Rudolph’s interest in expanding the camp has led to a combined Math Circles for boys and girls.

Space limited first 25 boys and 25 girls who apply

This event is being offered in collaboration with the Poudre School District and advertised through the Gifted and Talented Program. The registration fee of $50 inlcudes lunches Monday-Thursday and snacks throughout the week. 

We are limiting registration to the first 25 boys and 25 girls who apply, so if you know someone who may be interested encourage them to submit an application without delay. A background in Algebra 1 is recommended.
