San Francisco Math Circle (SFMC)

At the San Francisco Math Circle, we make math accessible, inclusive, and fun! The SF Math Circle is an extracurricular math enrichment program that gives students an opportunity to develop their mathematical thinking skills in a supportive, collaborative, and fun environment. In our after-school classes and camps, we promote positive attitudes towards math and learning through engaging, hands-on puzzles and games that involve both creativity and critical thinking.

We believe that everyone can engage in and enjoy mathematical thinking. We offer compelling, low-floor, high-ceiling activities that make mathematical thinking accessible and fun for students from diverse backgrounds.

Partner teachers from the SF Math Circle (SFMC) receive free professional development and support from a growing professional learning community, the SF Math Circle for Teachers. This program helps teachers to improve their own attitudes and knowledge of mathematics. Monthly standalone events and sessions concurrent with the SFMC student circles have both been offered. The impact of this teacher training extends into their classrooms to have an impact on more than 2,500 students in SF Bay Area schools.
