SoMD Math Circles Meets January 13
Math Circle is going square! Join Dr. Alex Meadows to talk about squares: Squares, Squares in Squares, Chomping Chocolate Squares, and other Squarecases as the Southern Maryland Math Circle meets from 10 am to noon Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018. Southern Maryland Math Circle is free and open to students grades 6 to 12 (parents welcome) who could use a little extra math fun in their life (and who couldn’t?!). The program is supported by The Patuxent Partnership
With ever-mounting pressure to have school children excel in STEM-related studies, parents are constantly seeking resources designed to give their children a leg up. One such program is the Southern Maryland Math Circle. The initiative was founded by Dr. David Kung, a math professor at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
The Southern Maryland Math Circle provides fun, fascinating math activities to middle and high school students (and their families). Run by the faculty at St. Mary’s College, this monthly gathering is sure to inspire a love of mathematical exploration to everyone who comes. Snacks will be provided. No registration is required. The next session will be held from 10 am to noon Jan. 13 at the Lexington Park Library meeting room.
Professor Kung, a Wisconsin MATHCOUNTS Champion himself, understands the importance of such programs and how they can positively influence students.
The Southern Maryland Math Circle program is an initiative designed to get students excited about mathematics by providing them with a setting that encourages exploration of non-standard mathematical problems rarely taught in standard curriculum. The Math Circle will allow students in grades 6 through 12 (and interested adults) to explore fascinating, open-ended math questions.
The library is at 21677 FDR Blvd. in Lexington Park.
