Presenters will share ideas for math circle activities that can be included in courses by math professors, K12 teachers, parents and community organizations. The goal is to highlight activities that show that math can be fu, interactive, accessible, and collaborative. Such activities level the playing field for all students, especially those from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics. Lesson plans should be self contained and easily replicated for ease of use by educators and parents.
Public perception of mathematics is highly skewed. Many people, even many in the upper echelons of business and administration, wear their dislike or fear of math as a badge of honor, communicating it freely. One important cause is the negative school and college experiences that many associate with mathematics. The subject is often presented as a rigid, closed set of arbitrary rules to be memorized and completed in a chorelike fashion. Math circles celebrate and emphasize the human and highly creative side of mathematics. Their inclusion into classes enhances students' experience and can change negative perceptions. Math Circle activities build confidence and encourage collaboration rather than competition between students. All types of activities are welcome in the session, including those that might not be relevant to particular courses but serve as "dessert" at the end if class.

The SIGMAA for Math Circles for Students and Teachers (SIGMAA MCST) supports MAA members who share an interest in developing, supporting and running math circles. It works to facilitate vertical integration of elementary, middle and high school students, their teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty up through highlevel research mathematicians.
