Classes (Fall 2023)
 
 
 
 

Registration for Fall 2023 is now waitlisted! You can apply, but admission is not guaranteed. The email you receive after applying is not a confirmation of a spot. You can see our planned schedule on this page. To stay updated every term, sign up for our mailing list to find out when registration opens. 

 

We run two kinds of classes. Math Circle classes promote and encourage the love of mathematics and problem solving skills, exploring math that isn’t covered in the mainstream public school curriculum. Beast Academy/Art of Problem Solving classes are in-depth and fun ways to do curriculum math. Check out our FAQ for more. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and classes often fill up.
 

For Fall 2023, Beast Academy/Art of Problem Solving classes will be held after school on Zoom, while Math Circle classes will be in-person on Saturdays. For Math Circle classes, you have a choice between morning or afternoon time slots for each age group.
 

Please note: new students to Beast Academy and AoPS classes should email info@cambridgemathcircle.org to set up an evaluation. No evaluation is needed for math circle classes - we will place your child in a small group with similar children.

PLEASE NOTE: The first class of Math Circle was originally on 9/16, with no class 9/23. The first class was moved to 9/23 due to inclement weather.

This means that for Math Circle we have no class on Thanksgiving Weekend and (except for 9/23, see above) we take off all three-day weekends observed by the Cambridge Public School District. For Beast Academy and Art of Problem Solving, we take off Thanksgiving Weekend only (even if CPSD takes a Tuesday or Thursday off, we still meet).

 

Registration for Summer Camp 2023 is open! Click the link below to register. For school-year classes, see here.

Cambridge Math Circle Summer Camp

 

Who is this for: kids who like puzzles, board games, and want to learn fun math.

Age range: kids entering grade 3-8.

I have a very bright child who isn't a rising 3rd grader yet. What do I do?

We are very glad that you've found us, and we thank you for your interest! However, many of our students are very passionate mathematicians, and therefore our problems tend to be quite challenging and many years ahead of what the kids are learning at school, so our camp is not a good fit, even for the brightest kids younger than rising 3rd grade. We look forward to seeing your kids in our regular classes when they reach the required age. In the meantime, you might want to look into Beast Academy Level 1 online or in book format!

Dates:

Regular times below. Extended day available upon request (early drop off (starting at 8:30 and late pick up at 5 pm))

  • 1 Day - June 23, 9 am - 2:00 pm (waitlist for all grades)

  • Week 1: June 26 - June 30, 9 am - 2:00 pm (waitlist for grades 3-5, available for grades 6-8)

  • No Camp for 4 weeks in July

  • Week 2: July 31 - August 4, 9 am - 2:00 pm

  • Week 3: August 7 - August 11, 9 am - 2:00 pm

Location: Harvard University (near Harvard Square)

Cost: $120/day, $600 for full week. Scholarships are available for low-income families, with a focus on Cambridge residents.

$150/week for extended day until 5:30 pm (not available for Week 2).

Join us for an in-person summer camp, where kids will solve logic puzzles, learn problem solving techniques, play board games, and learn about the lives of mathematicians. Every 45 minutes or so there will be a movement break. Space is extremely limited. Need-based financial aid is available, with a focus on Cambridge residents. Registration closes 1 week before the start of the session in question. First come, first-served.

 

Space is very limited, and we keep groups very small, so please only fill in the application form if you are sure your child will be able to come to camp. 

Note: a $30 application fee is added per child per summer. Need based waivers available ($0 fee for low-income families).
