WSU Math Circle resumes meetings for the fall semester. The next meeting is at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1 in 101 Lindquist Hall. Math Circle is a program for middle school students. Sunday’s speaker is Dr. Mai Dao, who will discuss the innerworkings of QR and bar codes, along with guiding students on how to make their own during the discussion.
Math Circles are education enrichment and outreach groups that bring mathematicians and mathematical scientists into direct contact with pre-college students. These students meet with math professionals in an informal setting, after school or on weekends, to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics. The goal is to get the students excited and passionate about mathematics.
Middle school students should bring a completed registration and consent form from the website.
