Congratulations on the start of the school year! Bard College and the surrounding school districts are coming back into session, and we're excited about math circle programming for the fall.

Events at Bard College, Fall 2014

Saturday, October 18, 1-3pm. Math Circle, including puzzles and games, challenging problems, and a hands-on project that students can take home. We help students strengthen their critical thinking skills and make math more fun.

Saturday, November 15, 1-3pm. Math Circle, including puzzles and games, challenging problems, and a hands-on project that students can take home. We help students strengthen their critical thinking skills and make math more fun.

Tuesday, November 18, 4-7pm. The AMC 8. This Contest contains engaging math problems that are challenging at the middle school level. The exam is intended to inspire, promote enthusiasm, and a healthy attitude towards mathematics. Students will be exposed to the richness of middle school level mathematics at a deeper level than ordinarily encountered in the schools. And after the exam, students will be treated to an engaging math talk from a Bard math professor.

Each of these events is free, but students must register in advance. A registration form will be posted on this page in September. If you'd like us to email you the announcement for when registration opens, please send us a friendly email to bardmathcircle@gmail.com.
