LSU Math Circle Summer Program
The LSU Math Circle Summer Program is a 3-week math summer camp at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA designed to introduce high school students to the complex world of college mathematics. Over the course of the program, students develop problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and logical reasoning through projects, games, and puzzles based on advanced mathematical topics. In addition to working on problems, participants also attend lectures by LSU professors and enjoy recreational trips to local science and research centers.
This year the LSU Math Circle will be included in LSU's Pre-College Summer Academy as the Mathematics Mini-Major. More information can be found on LSU's website at https://precollege.lsu.edu/academy.
The 2020 program will be held from June 7th to June 27th, 2020.
After the summer program, many local high school students choose to stay on and join the Math Circle Competition Team (MCCT), which meets weekly on LSU's campus to practice for national-level high school math competitions. The team holds practices every Sunday from 1:00PM-2:30PM, and Math Circle helps to subsidize competition expenses like travel and housing. MCCT competes annually in the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT), the Berkeley Math Tournament (BMT), and the American Regions Mathematics League Competition (ARML).
