Pizza Party and Awards – Friday, May 24th, 2019

To Current and Former Students of SJMC:

Please join us on Friday, May 24th, for the final meeting of the 2018-2019 
school year.

Stan Isaacs will bring a wonderful collection of puzzles and we will have
plenty of pizza. Students (including former students and students who
plan to apply for 2019-2020) and their parents and families are invited to
attend.  We will give awards to participants of our monthly math contest.

We will supply the pizza, chips, fruits, cookies and fruit juice. If you wish,
you may bring additional food for either just your family or to share.

If you plan to attend, and haven’t done so already, please RSVP by filling
out this form:
This will help us know how many pizzas to buy.

The meeting will take place from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in MacQuarrie Hall
Room 320 on the campus of San Jose State University.

Here’s the directions and some information about parking.

Bay Area Mathematical Olympiad (BAMO)

BAMO exam is on Tuesday, February 26, 2019. Registration is now closed.

Do you like problem solving? Enjoy competition?

The Bay Area Mathematics Olympiad (BAMO) is the first step on the road to competing in the national and international olympics of mathematics. There are two levels of tests: BAMO-8 for students 8th grade and under and BAMO-12 for students 12th grade and under. The test will take place February 26 from 4:00pm to 9:00pm on the SJSU campus. 

Space is limited; current and former students of San Jose Math Circle will be given top priority for reserving seats.  We will send out e-mail confirmations by February 20.  There are other sites in the Bay Area to take BAMO.

See the BAMO website: to learn more about the BAMO and to read questions and solutions from prior years.  It is best to spend some time practicing for this competition and learning in advance what is expected. You will have a much better experience if you are prepared.

Math Summer Programs

San Jose Math Circle does not offer a summer program, but around the U.S. there are many great math summer camps. The best summer programs usually have an application process and are selective.

Admission Decisions sent for 2018-2019

According to our records, we have now sent e-mail responses to everyone who applied for admission for the 2018-2019 academic year.
If you applied and have not received a response, please let us know by sending us an e-mail.
This year we had twice as many students apply to our Intermediate class as we had room for. This forced us to turn away many qualified students. If you have any questions please let us know and we will respond as best we can.
