For new students, summer is usually the best time to join the program.
2. All the groups for grades 1-12 are currently completely full. In order to be considered for a spot (in the unlikely case it opens up), please submit the application form answering all questions in detail. Preference will be given national winners to Math Kangaroo and American Math Competitions (AMC8,AMC10, AMC12), with some consideration for siblings of current students. There is no testing into any of the older groups as we anticipate none or at best very few spots.
3. New students must submit their applications to the groups corresponding to their grade level (independently of the classes they take in school). Please use the guide below to select the correct group:
grades 2-3 -- Beginners 1A
grades 3-4 -- Beginners 2A
grades 5-6 -- Intermediate 1A
grades 7-8 -- Intermediate 2A
grades 9-10 -- Advanced 1A
grades 11 -- Advanced 2A
grade 12 -- Advanced 2B
This puts you on the list of people interested in the program. If a space opens up, we go through all applications for this group and select the candidate for the spot based on the information you provided. If we have any questions, we will send you a follow-up email.
4. Summer session
is designed specifically for new students. Academic year students are not accepted into the summer session. Thus, this is the best was for a new student to experience the math circle. Applications are out every May. All the applicants are tested. Usually, we only have most of elementary and middle school grade levels in the summer session.
5. To get started, go to "Apply to LAMC" on the left. Create an account. Add your child(ren) to the account. For each child, submit an application for 19F. Please answer all questions in detail. If a spot opens up for your child, we will contact you right away. Please keep in mind that we expect no more than 1-2 spots in each of the existing groups.
