Math Circles combine mathematics, problem solving, and community to create engaging out-of-school experiences for our participants. To support successful Math Circle sessions we encourage you to do some form of training for the individuals who will be doing your Math Circle sessions, we call these mathematicians Math Circle Facilitators.
To help you prepare for these concerns we provide a planning checklist of information to share with your Math Circle Facilitators. This list combined with a basic outline of the Circle Training are provided in the webinar.
This is a product of the NAMC Math Circle Mentorship and Partnership (MC-MAP) webinar series.
MC-MAP is a program of the National Association of Math Circles, and is funded by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, the National Security Agency, the National Science Foundation, and the Clowes Foundation.
