How do you keep up with your homeschooled math or science whiz kid who needs more academic challenge than you can provide? Perhaps a Math Circle or Science Circle might be the answer.
Gabe Salmon is a homeschool high schooler who has been involved with the debut of a Math Circle at Arizona State University this past year. It was a great experience to be able to interact with some of the cutting edge thinkers and ideas in the mathematics field, and to have a peer group for exploration and discussion of the topics. Students and research faculty met together weekly to hear lectures and problem solve on issues such as soap bubbles, number theory, crytography and jugglematics.
The goal of a math circle is to provide mathematical challenges to high school students which are beyond what the typical curiculum will cover.
