LinksThe Berkeley Math Circle (BMC) is intended for talented middle- and high-school students who are interested in extending their mathematical knowledge and skills well beyond what their curriculum offers. It is a Hilde L. Mosse program for education at MSRI. The Circle meets on the Berkeley campus during the academic year for 2-hour sessions that includes advanced math topics for high and middle school students. The majority of the sessions are split into separate groups for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. For further information, please see http://mathcircle.berkeley.edu/
The Oakland/East Bay Math Circle offers middle school students and teachers in the Oakland and East Bay area the opportunity to learn advanced mathematics in a free, after-school enrichment program. This is an extraordinary activity for students who enjoy mathematics and want to learn more. For more information on the program, please visit http://oebmc.mathcircles.org
The San Francisco Math Circle (SFMC) is intended primarily for middle school students in San Francisco who are interested in extending their mathematical knowledge and skills well beyond what their curriculum offers. It is funded at MSRI through The Moody's Foundation. The Circle meets on the San Francisco State University campus every week during the academic year for a 2-hour session that includes advanced middle school topics and lots of challenging problems. Teachers whose students are involved in SFMC are eligible for a Math Circle for Teachers, funded by the S. D. Bechtel Foundation. For further information, please see http://www.sfmathcircle.org.
The San Jose Math Circle (SJMC) is for middle and high school students, and is held on most Wednesday evenings for two hours at San Jose State University during the academic year. About once per month a Bay Area Mathematical Adventures (BAMA) presentation replaces it, which is held alternately at San Jose State University and at the Santa Clara University. It is funded by a grant from MSRI and by donations from parents of the students who attend. For more information, see http://www.sanjosemathcircle.org/.
The Stanford Math Circle is intended for middle and high school students and meets for two hours on Thursday evenings on the campus of Stanford University. For further information, please see http://mathcircle.stanford.edu.
The Marin Math Circle holds weekly sessions for middle and high school students on the campus of Dominican University in San Rafael. For more information, please see http://www.marinmathcircle.org.
The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) exists to further mathematical research through broadly based programs in the mathematical sciences and closely related activities. From its beginning in 1982 the Institute has been primarily funded by the NSF with additional support from other government agencies, private foundations, and academic and corporate Sponsors. Now more than 1500 mathematical scientists visit MSRI each year, many for substantial periods. MSRI is a sponsor of BAMO.
