More details...

The Kittitas Valley Math Circle (KVMC) provides free weekly activities for 2nd through 6th-grade students to explore mathematics. During the one-hour Math Circle sessions, the students work with one another to solve mathematical puzzles and play mathematical games. Through these activities, the students learn about advanced mathematical topics, enjoy the companionship of other young students who enjoy math and grow under the guidance of undergraduate mentors.  Having fun activities led by this diverse group of undergraduate students paint a picture for these young elementary and middle school students that reinforces that anyone can be great at mathematical thinking and problem-solving.

**Parents and guardians sessions will be held 4/16 and 4/23.**  The Math Circle also provides a quarterly opportunity for parents and guardians of these students to learn more about the national Common Core of mathematics and other curriculum changes currently happening at local K-12 schools. This quarterly gathering is a supportive forum organized by Central professor Shiver and local teacher Linda Graf that also includes tips about the mathematical games the students will be exploring. The goal is to provide more opportunities for families to learn more about their students’ current classroom experience and to engage in mathematical exploration as a family once the students go home.
