On September 16th, over 300 Los Angeles Math Circle (LAMC) participants, alumni and their families came to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the program. LAMC is a top-tier math circle attracting elementary, middle and high school students interested in mathematics and eager to learn. An affiliate program of the Department of Mathematics at UCLA , LAMC has also been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Mathematical Science Research Instittue (MSRI), the Boeing Employees Community Fund, Raytheon, a gift from the Glickman family, and math circle families donations.
At the celebration, Olga Radko, founding director, gave a brief overview of the program's history, its growth and the many successes since the inception of LAMC in 2007. Five speakers made up of alumni and former instructors joined a panel to share their favorite LAMC memories and discussed how the program has helped to shape their career aspirations. A special guest, Arthur Benjamin, performed his "Mathemagic" show wowing guests with his live human calculator performance. The event wrapped up with a reception reconnecting the LAMC family.
