This is an outreach program
for motivated students (high school
or younger) with an interest in
mathematics.

The tradition of Math Circles began in Hungary and other Eastern
European countries and involves research mathematicians helping young
students broaden their mathematical knowledge and
prepare for various mathematical competitions.

Students need only have two years of algebra, an active sense of curiosity, and a willingness to work on mathematical problems.

**For Fall 2005, the program will meet
every
other Saturday, 2:00 - 3:30pm, in the Graham
Center at the University Park campus of FIU**

**- room GC 285 for high school
students**

**- room GC 283 for elementary school
students.
**

**
First meeting: Saturday, September 24.
**There is no charge for
attending.
