We have 10 different classes scheduled for spring. The first five weeks will consist of presentations from professors and graduate students in the UC Davis Mathematics Department, taught at a level appropriate for middle school/early high school students. The last five weeks will be hands-on lessons led by the coordinators of Math Circle, and are meant for 4th-6th graders. Please note that these age groups are suggestions, meant to inform parents of the maturity level necessary for and/or the level of interactivity provided in the class. We do not turn anyone away from any class based on age or grade. 

Classes will be held these following Saturdays 12-2 PM in Mathematical Sciences Building 2112 on the UC Davis Campus. Please note that this schedule may change slightly as time goes on, but overall will retain the same 5-week/5-week format between the two age groups. Any changes will be sent out in advance through email.
