"When I was in the high school what I did most in math classes was memorize formulas and do lots of calculations. I was blessed to find the Math Circles program. I loved the way of approaching the concepts, and I learned a lot from the materials along with my daughter. Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful program to our kids."

Math Educator

"Let us not equate mathematics and arithmetic; let us not equate applying algorithms and thinking. Math Circles explores mathematics that is worthy of the human intellect. It's not trying to make math easy, but celebrates the challenge of struggling with a tough problem."

Graduate

"After graduating, I went to University of Waterloo and am studying Statistics. I think Math Circles helped me a lot, especially with regards to tackling a problem from multiple perspectives, which was a skill that I use a lot in both my academic work and professional work."

"Once again, Andrew had a wonderful year with Math Potentials. Thank you very much for all your hard work! Andrew has gone from being very intimidated by math to feeling quite confident(sometimes boastful ha ha) and comfortable with it. He got all As last report card, and was recommended to Grade 9 Math because he had finished Grade 8 by December, so in Grade 9, he will be taking Gr10 Math."

The strategies that I learned helped me gain more confidence in math, as I used to be rather slow at calculating mentally. I also learned how to use my common sense when solving problems which deepened my understanding in math. In class, I was given many chances to share my thinking process, and now I find it much easier to share my ideas in classroom discussions.

Math Circles has largely helped to improve my confidence and abilities in mathematics since I joined the program in Grade 5. Currently, as a Grade 11 IB student, I feel strong confidence and mathematical understanding which is in large part due to Math Circles.

"I am pleased to inform you that my daughter, Alisha (currently in Omega) has been accepted into the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. She wrote the Advanced SCAT exam and qualified with high marks in Math (90th percentile) for the summer programs across many top-ranked Universities. Both Alisha and I wanted to thank the Math Potentials program as we know that in addition to her hard work at home, her being in the program for the last 2.5 years has contributed to her success."
