Alvin Kim is the 2013-2014 champion for both AMC 8 and AMC 10 at Cal State Fullerton. Although he was at that time just in the 7th grade, Alvin presents his research during the Undergraduate Poster Session at the Spring 2014 MAA SoCal Nevada Meeting, Concordia University, Irvine, April 12, 2014.Math Circle Sessions for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017

For the next academic year we plan to work with two sections:
(1) students in the age group of grades 7-8
(2) students in high-school, grades 9-12
 
We will focus on the programs of the Mathematical Association of America, including the American Mathematical Competitions and the local conferences taking place in California. To support our students' participations in these conferences, we plan to inspire our projects from various sources, including the London-based Mathematical Gazette, as well as the Romanian Gazeta matematic─â. 
 
All Math Circle sessions meet at CSUF's main campus, in McCarthy Hall rooms MH 476 and MH 480:
(all events take place Saturday, from 10:00 am to noon, unless specified otherwise)
