The Bard Math Circle is a mathematics enrichment program for upper elementary and middle school students, families, and teachers.
We invite students and teachers to the Bard campus as well as traveling to local libraries and schools to promote a partnership between the college and the surrounding community. Activities such as games, puzzles, and problem sets are presented to participants in an enthusiastic and encouraging manner, allowing students, educators, and volunteers to explore mathematics outside of the typical school curriculum.
Both creative and hands-on approaches and teamwork are highly encouraged, introducing a stimulating community aspect to a subject often thought to be dull and isolating. The Bard Math Circle bridges the gap between academic and recreational mathematics; critical thinking skills learned here are applicable both at school and in general.
