Math Circle

The Brown University Math Circle (BUMC) is a collaborative, non-competitive enrichment program for public high school students in and around Providence, Rhode Island. The goal of the BUMC is to help underserved and underrepresented students, including students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, students of color, and women, develop their appreciation for math through creative problem-solving activities.

The BUMC is held once a week in the Brown University math department, and it is taught by professors and graduate students. Each session focuses on a different topic, ranging from graph theory to cryptography, in order to expose students to a variety of exciting math. Whether or not participants go on to math-based careers, having a positive relationship to math will empower them in high school and for the rest of their lives.
