About Us

Welcome to the Math Circle at UC Davis website!

We are a group of UC Davis students who volunteer for math focused events for NorCal high school and middle school students. Most of our students are currently in 6th-10th grade.

We have sent application emails to those were admitted/waitlisted in Spring 2019. If you are interested to apply for admission for Math Circle Junior in Fall 2019, please complete the Google Forms here. We will inform whether or not the student is admitted/waitlisted by email.

Junior Math Circle at UC Davis

Junior Math Circle (JMC) is a program for grades 3-5 that exposes students to mathematical problem solving through weekly meetups and homework practice.

The application process for joining JMC for fall 19′ has already completed. If you are interested in receiving announcements for future sessions of the JMC, please join their google group here.

National Organization

Math Circle is an organization that promotes mathematical outreach and supports math related events to students in elementary, middle and high school. It is one of the many math circles under the National Association of Math Circles, and aims to provide interesting mathematical content and activities to the younger students beyond the conventional math classroom setting.

Enthusiasm and willingness to jump in are all you need to benefit from our program. So come join us and see why mathematics has fascinated the world’s most brilliant people for thousands of years!

Directions to Mathematical Sciences Building (MSB):

I have been told that parking in the A and C lots near the math building is OK on weekends, but I have not seen any official verification of this. Here is a searchable map of the UC Davis campus: http://campusmap.ucdavis.edu/

  • From Sacramento: Take I-80 west toward San Francisco. You will pass two Davis exits (Mace Blvd. and Richards Blvd.) and then a sign to UC Davis (and possibly the Mondavi Center) about 0.5 miles beyond Richards Blvd. You will exit to the right and turn right. The road will turn back the way you came. You will pass an information kiosk and then, in about 100 yards, there is a road to the left (California Ave.). Take the road, cross over a small bridge and continue going until you have to turn left into the parking lot at the back of the MSB. Enter into the building from the main entrance. We will be meeting on the second floor, in room 2112.
  • From San Francisco: Take I-80 east toward Sacramento. Immediately beyond the turnoff for Highway 113 west to Woodland (NOT east – the two roads are about 3 miles apart) you will see a sign for the UC Davis campus (and possibly the Mondavi Center). Exit the road to the right and turn left under the freeway. The road will bend to the right towards Sacramento. Now follow the directions of the second paragraph above (You will pass…)
  • From Woodland: Take Highway 113 toward Davis. Pass the three Davis exits and take I-80 toward Sacramento. Immediately on your right, you will see a sign for the UC Davis campus (and possibly the Mondavi Center). Exit the road to the right and turn left under the freeway. The road will bend to the right towards Sacramento. Now follow the directions of the second paragraph above (You will pass…)
