People often approach me and say, “Doug, you have math circles on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays. But why not Fridays?”
Actually, they don’t. BUT, Alex Furman, a math professor at UIC, has realized that almost no one has programs early Friday evenings, so he’s seized the date. It’s the place to be if you want to experience Olympiad level questions with a friendly group of peers and the ever warm Professor Furman (who every once and a while teaches an Euler section in math circles).
The UIC Math Olympiad Project will meet from 4:45-7:00PM on 9/15, 10/6, 10/20, 11/10, and 12/1. Sign up here and see some sample problems here. With Po-Shen Loh, coach of the US national Olympiad team, speaking to math circle students tomorrow, the next logical step is to participate in UIC MOP!
