Math Circles: Talks about Mathematical Joy, Inspirations, Data-Driven Lessons Learned
Session Description: The Math Circle community has been working hard over the last several
years to maintain enthusiasm for mathematics in a variety of mathematical outreach and
enrichment settings – bringing joy and fun for a bit of time when many have felt disconnected.
Presenters in this themed session will share the ideas that worked well, that connected, and that
brought moments of joy. These ideas don’t need to be your own work, presenters can talk about
who inspired their idea and discuss how they have adapted other Math Circles leaders’ ideas to
inspire their own. Presenters are also encouraged to share strategies used to successfully engage
with virtual audiences, support the needs of diverse learners, improve outreach, along with any
other (qualitative or quantitative) data-driven ideas that improve engagement experiences.

Welcome to SIGMAA on Math Circles for Students and Teachers!
A math circle is broadly defined as a semi-formal, sustained enrichment experience that brings mathematics professionals in direct contact with pre-college students and/or their teachers. Circles foster passion and excitement for deep mathematics.
The goal of this SIGMAA is to give math circles greater visibility and a permanent presence in the mathematical and educational landscape. This SIGMAA 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 high-level research mathematicians.
