SFMC Updates!

SFMC is currently at the end of a long grant that has sustained us for several years and allowed us to be a free program. We are in transition and are actively seeking grants and donations in order to continue. To get involved or stay in touch, please sing-up for our new electronic newsletter here!

The high school/ middle school San Francisco Math Circle programs are currently active on Mondays through December 1st (skipping October 13th). This program is very open - any interested student or teacher is welcome to join. Simply contact Co-Director Addie Schnirel (adde at sfsu dot edu), and she will send you the paperwork.

The Elementary program (2nd-5th) is currently full. Occasionally, we have a few seats open up for the Spring 2015 (or sooner). If you are interested in signing up for the Spring 2015 Lottery, please do so here. We will notify anyone whose name is drawn in late January. If you are interested in signing up for the Fall 2015 Lottery, please do so here. *Please note that we do not yet have funding for the Spring 2015 and beyond. We are actively searching for grants and soliciting donations.

The San Francisco Math Circle is a weekly program for students and their teachers, taking place at the San Francisco locations on Mondays. Each week, several classes meet simultaneously. Math Circle for Students is our program for students in grades 6–10, while Math Circle for Teachers is a for-credit course for the teachers who take their students to the program.
