The Blacksburg Math Circle is a tuition-free enrichment program open to all middle school students in Blacksburg and its vicinity who are interested in mathematics.

The focus of the Blacksburg Math Circle is on showcasing the beauty of mathematics and its applications, improving students' problem solving skills and getting them excited about mathematics they are learning.

The Blacksburg Math Circle meetings bring together middle school students and mathematicians or graduate students in an informal setting to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics, not covered in a typical school curriculum.

Types of meetings:

The topics we cover are as varied as symmetry, the pigeon-hole principle, combinatorics, divisibility, probability, invariants, graphs, induction, plane geometry, and sequences.
