At the JAMES (Junior Alberta Mathematics for Eager Students) mathematics circle we explore problems from various math competitions from around the world (Tournament of the Towns, Edmonton Junior High Invitational, IMC), as well as going over various problem solving techniques. We look at many different fields within math, such as number theory, graph theory, combinations and geometry. We aim to tackle larger problems systematically and logically. It is called a math circle instead of a math club, because it tends to have a little more direction, as we focus on specific strategies and types of problems. The circle's primary audience is high performing junior high (grades 7-9) students, although some grade 6 students also attend.

Anyone who is interested in learning more math or trying new problems is welcome. There is no cost to join, and you don't need to register, you can just drop in and see if you are interested. All you need to bring is paper, pencil and a curious brain.
