The National Association of Math Circles (NAMC)

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) established the National Association of Math Circles (NAMC) in 2007 to nurture the growth of Math Circles by:

  • Seeding the creation of additional Math Circles in the United States;
  • Building a community of Math Circles leaders through which novice and existing leaders are connected, encouraged and inspired;
  • Providing high-quality resources that help Math Circles build and sustain effective programs; and
  • Documenting and disseminating the impact of Math Circle programs across the nation.

NAMC inspired the creation and growth of many of the Math Circles active today through seed funding, web-based resources, and professional promotion at the two largest national meetings of mathematicians (MAA MathFest and the Joint Mathematics Meetings). NAMC also partners with the Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America for Math Circles for Students and Teachers (SIGMAA-MCST) to offer special sessions and Math Circle demonstrations at these national meetings.
