Greater Miami Valley Math Circle
The Greater Miami Valley Math Circle (GMVMC) is an organization dedicated to helping the students of the Miami Valley and beyond. Our math circle focuses on mathematical enrichment and problem solving while also providing a few competition opportunities. We have three levels: Beginning (Grades 5-7, no algebra needed), Intermediate (Grades 7-9, some algebra needed), and Advanced (Grades 9-12, need Algebra I or the equivalent completed). Faculty come from local school districts, area colleges and universities, private industry, and government. We have students from all over the area and beyond; we are truly a “Greater Miami Valley” organization!
We meet from 10:30am-Noon every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month during the school year (September-early May) in the Mathematical and Microbiological Sciences (MM) Building on the campus of Wright State University.
Enrichment topics include age-appropriate treatments of logic and proof, geometry, number theory, combinatorics, algebra, statistics, and more. We cover topics not usually seen in school mathematics and reinforce and explain things learned in school as well. Competition opportunities include the American Mathematics Contest 8th Grade Test (AMC 8 Test) for our Grade 8 and below students each fall and the Ohio Mathematics Contest (OMC) for all of our students except Grade 12 seniors.
If you would like to inquire about joining one of our groups, please contact Mr. Erik Potts (at firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Munsup Seoh (at email@example.com). Spaces are limited! If there is not space for your child at the time you email us, then you will be placed on our waiting list. Available spaces will be offered to those on our waiting list first, with priority given to those on the list longest.
And, if you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering with our organization, please let us know as well! We are happy to talk with you and see where your skills and talents can be best used!
Lastly, please let us know if you have any questions and see the attached flyer about our group. Please share it with anyone who would be interested! We thank you in advance for reading this letter and wish you well!
