STEVENS POINT — A free mathematics program that challenges junior high school students under the guidance of university professors will be offered at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Point Math Circle, a seven-week program, meets from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesdays from Oct. 25 to Dec. 12 (no class Nov. 21) in the Science Building room A212. Sessions for seventh- through ninth-grade students will be led by UW-Stevens Point professors Kadir Bahar and Sinan Kanbir, with visits from mathematics experts from other universities.

Point Math Circle was launched at UW-Stevens Point earlier this year and is part of the National Association of Math Circles, www.mathcircles.org. These groups bring K-12 students together with mathematics experts in an informal setting, after school or on weekends, to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics.

For more information, contact Bahar at 715-346-2867 or kbahar@uwsp.edu or register online at www.uwsp.edu/education/Pages/talent/PointMathCircle/default.aspx.
