National Association of Math Circles

The National Association of Math Circles (NAMC) provides resources and support for Math Circles and other similar informal mathematics education programs. We aid in the creation and sustainability of Math Circle programs, through the development and sharing of the resources for Math Circle leaders, as well as the development of a national network to deepen our knowledge of best practices related to Math Circles. NAMC primary programs include Math Circle - Mentorship and Partnership grant program (MC-MAP), Math Circle Workshops and Conferences, and AMS/MSRI Math Circle Library.

You can learn more about Math Circles through out the website.

The National Math Festival is returning to Washington, D.C. April 22, 2017

On Sunday, April 17, 2016, David Eisenbud, Director of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) announced that the Festival will return to Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

The National Math Festival is the only nationwide Festival dedicated to celebrating and showcasing the fun and power of math, and it brings together the most influential mathematicians of our time including Math Circle leaders to inspire and challenge participants to experience math like never before.

At the 2015 National Math Festival, more than 20,000 people came together around Washington, D.C.’s National Mall to experience upwards of 70 math­centric activities, including performances, interactive exhibits, and lectures, all designed to inspire appreciation for the importance, beauty and fun of math. NAMC students and instructors had a ton of fun in 2015 and we are looking forward to the 2017 event! Stay tuned for more information, .
