PROMYS Math Circle (PMC) Application
This is a free school-year mentoring program aimed at mathematically ambitious high school students in high-needs Massachusetts school districts and/or from lower-income or underrepresented backgrounds. Selected students will participate in an in-school math circle or in a virtual math circle (using video chat and email) with a mentor who is a PROMYS for Teachers alum or a graduate student well versed in PROMYS techniques of exploration-based mathematics.
Please submit this form if you are interested in working on intriguing mathematical problem solving (in addition to your regular schoolwork). You do not need to have taken advanced math courses or have perfect grades. However, should you join a PROMYS Math Circle, you will be expected to spend about 2 - 5 hours a week on math circle activities.
Mentored students who are interested will be encouraged to consider applying to PROMYS or other academic summer programs and supported through the application process (and encouraged to apply for financial aid as needed).
