Los Angeles Math Circle Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Elementary students eagerly participating in math activities.

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.
