Math Circles of Chicago offers engaging, flexible, and free math programs to students in grades 3–12. We focus on reaching Black and Latino communities and other communities where most children live in low-income households.
In Chicago, the gap between safe, empowering math enrichment opportunities offered to white and affluent students and those provided to students of color and students from households with low incomes is wide. We must come together as a city to ensure every student in Chicago has the opportunity to explore, create, and learn to love math.
