Marin Math Circle students will develop deeper thinking and problem solving skills through challenging and exploratory math activities.  Topics covered are usually outside of the standard classroom curriculum. This circle aims to educate students who love math or are excited to learn.  Taught by Dr Katherine Paur (MIT BS Math, Harvard PhD Math). Dr Paur currently teaches at Nueva High School, and was the former Mathematics Chair at GATE Academy. Prior to GATE, she ran the simulation & modeling group for a robotics company (now called Amazon Robotics), and has 12 years of experience teaching and mentoring undergraduate students.

Grade 7-8 | 5.40-6.55pm | $350

The Intermediate Circle offers math-curious students the opportunity to explore complex mathematical ideas and topics. Facilitated by math experts with different teaching methods, class format may vary and may include demonstration of experiments, guided discussions, teamwork, hands-on activities, and handouts. 

The Intermediate Math Circle will be facilitated by a rotating roster of talented mathematicians with a passion for teaching problem solving to students.  

Advanced by placement only | 5.40-7.30pm | $375

The Advanced Circle is by placement only.  Students will be taken on a deeper dive on topics not typically covered in the classroom, and will continue to hone their problem solving skills.  

The Advanced Math Circle will be facilitated by a rotating roster of talented mathematicians with a passion for teaching problem solving to students.  

*For students signing up for a level that doesn't match their school grade, placement tests will determine level*
