MATHEMATICS IS FREEDOM

Tell me and I forget. Ask me and I discover.

Why should so many be bored or frightened by math, the Art of the Infinite, our Window on Form, the Keys to the Kingdom of Meaning?


In The Global Math Circle, we aim to give children of any age the self-esteem and admiration of their friends that comes from discovering math together, in a collegial conversation. We tell no one anything, no more than posing an accessible mystery and letting them invent their way to insight and proof. Classes are buoyant and intense, without put-downs, tests or grades. For the leader they are high-wire acts without a safety net.


At Global Math Circle, we believe that the treasures of math are within everyone's reach. Discovery strengthens, instruction weakens

HOW IT WORKS:

The Global Math Circle offers online "Math Circles" for kids from age 4 through adolescence. A Math Circle is group of eight or fewer participants meeting along with a leader for an hour for ten weeks on our online platform.

 

The leader poses a deep and exciting question and lets the group loose on it, steering the conversation as little and unobtrusively as possible. Kids come up with examples, counter-examples, insights and proofs through conversations with their peers. Classes are intense fun. There are neither tests nor grades, and rather than homework, participants share their on-going thoughts and questions to one another. 

WHAT THE GLOBAL MATH CIRCLE IS:

  • Exploration of mathematics in a group setting with others from all over the world and many different perspectives

  • Convenience  of being at home

  • Groups for wide variety of ages

  • Wide variety of topics, many that are outside school curriculum

  • Experienced, enthusiastic and committed teachers

  • Classes that encourage a free discussion of ideas; while the mathematics is deep, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed
