Bored with your Math class? The Rice Math Circle is for Houston area students in grades 7-12 who find that the regular math curriculum is not challenging enough. To get the most out of our meetings, you should have mastered algebra and know basic geometry but calculus is not required.
We meet on selected Sundays from 1-4 pm at the Rice University campus in The Herman Brown Hall for Mathematics in Room 227. Directions to our meetings can be found by following the "Directions" link shown above.
We encourage all interested students to attend but please pre-register and fill out the consent form. This form is necessary so that we can use the Rice University facilities and should be turned in at your first meeting.
