The Montreal math circle is an enrichment program which offers an occasion for students interested in mathematics to solve challenging problems at their grade level. The circle aims at bringing pleasure and confidence in children while doing mathematics. The problems during each meeting will be centered around a specific topic. The instructor is bilingual and will accommodate students from both English and French instruction schools. For more information, please feel free to send an email at montrealmathclub@gmail.com.

The Montreal math circle resumes its activities on October 1st with two Fall sessions whose schedules are listed below.  If you would like to register your child for a session, please complete the form https://goo.gl/forms/jdJ2VG1gjOygT6Xk1.   You must complete a separate form for each child and for each session you wish to register.

Cost:  There will be a one-time registration fee of $50 per child for the first session ($60 for the second session) which will also cover the cost of materials for all classes in the session. This can be paid to the instructor at the time of the first meeting, in cash or by check (payable to: Concordia University). The Montreal math circle reserves its right to cancel a certain level if a minimum of 6 participants is not attained.

Dates:  On Sundays / Les dimanches (see below)

Times:  See times for each grade below.

Place: Concordia University, Room: MB 1.301 (1450 Guy Street, corner of de Maisonneuve) Map

Parents of children attending the circle are asked to complete the following form and bring it to the instructor at the beginning of the session:  http://www.concordia.ca/content/dam/common/docs/policies/official-policies/VPS-8_waiver.pdf

Mentorship for Mathematical Contests:  
The Montreal Math Circle is facilitating student participation to several mathematical competitions that take place during the year. Please take a look at the 2017-18 Mathematics Competition Calendar and if your child, or children, are interested in participating, please send an email to montrealmathclub@gmail.com with the subject line Math Competition. For the competitions taking place in the Fall, please write ASAP for the contest Who wants to be a mathematician and by October 2nd for the remaining Fall contests as we have to make different arrangements depending on the number of participants.
