Math Circle Meets Jan. 14 at Library

Math Circle Meets

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, education continues to be the buzzword for today’s educators, students, and parents. With ever-mounting pressure to have school children excel in STEM-related studies, parents are constantly seeking out resources designed to give their children a leg up. One such program is the Southern Maryland Math Circle.

The initiative was founded by Dr. David Kung, a math professor at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and supported by The Patuxent Partnership. TPP member RED Inc. is also a strong sponsor of the Math Circle program, providing financial support for the program last year and continuing with this year’s programs as well.

Professor Kung, a Wisconsin MATHCOUNTS Champion himself, understands the importance of such programs and how they can positively influence students.

The Southern Maryland Math Circle program is an initiative designed to get students excited about mathematics by providing them with a setting that encourages exploration of non-standard mathematical problems rarely taught in standard curriculum. The Math Circle will allow students in grades 6 through 12 (and interested adults) to explore fascinating, open-ended math questions.

The Math Circle has kicked off its new season at the Lexington Park Library.  The next session will be from 10 am to noon Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017. The library is at 21677 FDR Blvd. in Lexington Park, MD 20653.

Other dates the Math Circle will meet are Feb. 11, March 11, April 8, and May 13.
