### Who is this for?

We are a year-round, in-person math program in Northern Virginia for students in grades 3 to 12. We help students:

- Succeed in their current math courses
- Accelerate through the standard math sequence
- Identify and address math gaps and weaknesses
- Apply math creatively to solve open-ended problems

### Math Circles

Students meet in-person in small-group **Math Circles** and, with the help of instructors, complete school assignments and prepare for tests.
Math Circle sessions are one hour and forty-five minutes long, and meet on Sundays.

Also, we have developed our own diagnostic tests and workbooks aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning. At our Math Circles, students use this curriculum to pursue their individual goals for review, reinforcement, and acceleration.
