Welcome to SDMC's new website.
This site is very much under (re)construction. Familiar resources and content are being restored and updated, but bits at a time. At present, the overall layout of the site is very similar to the previous one, but with some structural and cosmetic differences relating to the workings of GoogleSites. You can expect to see continuing changes as we continue the rebuild, but the overall plan will remain. As with other aspects of SDMC, this is a largely volunteer effort depending on the generosity of good people who give of their time and effort to help us all.
The application period for the 2015-2016 SDMC season
is now closed.

The San Diego Math Circle is a consortium of individuals and groups united behind the goal of serving the exceptional educational needs of exceptional mathematics students. SDMC is hosted by the University of California, San Diego, managed by dedicated parent volunteers, and taught by a diverse slate of professionals from the greater San Diego area.
The purpose of SDMC is not only to excel at mathematics, but to develop a broad and deep understanding of how to solve problems. The thought processes developed at the SDMC will help students in any logical endeavor, be it mathematics, science, business, law, etc. Our goal is to teach students how to think creatively and effectively.
SDMC is challenging by design. We believe that students who can solve most of the problems they see are not being challenged enough. We provide hard problems and teach strategies for solving them. In time avid students stretch their problem solving skills while growing in their knowledge of mathematics outside of standard school curricula.
This is the working website of SDMC. Browsing the tabs at left will answer many questions and provide up-to-date information on activities. If you feel SDMC may be for you or your student, these tabs will also take you through registration and provide guidance on how to contribute to SDMC through service and financial contributions.
