University of British Columbia


PIMS and UBC are excited to be bringing back the Math Circles Workshops for elementary school students to Monday evenings this Winter/ Spring 2019. We invite students from grades 4-7 to challenge and develop their thinking, creativity and problem solving skills in a fun learning environment that brings math to life.


Math Circles Workshops are an enrichment program organized by faculty members from UBC's Department of Mathematics as well as the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.

The goal is to introduce students to the importance of mathematics in the real world, how it impacts their lives, and how it exists in everything. More than that, we introduce students to how fun mathematics can truly be. We want to get students excited about the possibilities of mathematics in a setting that encourages them to be passionate about the subject.


Sessions are offered by Dr. Melania Alvarez, PIMS/ UBC Mathematics Education coordinator.
