Elementary Circle


  • The Marin Math Circle will not run during Fall 2015. We hope to restart the program in January 2016.


The Marin Math Circle’s Elementary Group is recommended for students in grades 3 and 4. The main purpose of this group is to expose children to fun mathematical problems and ideas so that they develop a positive attitude towards math. The program is interactive, and sessions may include experiments, storytelling, manipulatives, guided discussions, independent work, and work in teams. The Marin Math Circle is intended for students who are good at math and like working on challenging problems.
