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