MATH CIRCLES AT FIU
We continue our work after the Summer Break. place: GL 137. Time of meetings every other Saturday, 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.Little Circle: September 24th
On this meeting we are discussing non-standard math problems, and gradually moving toward solving problems from competitions
On line access to the Circle
It may be possible to attend the Circle virtually (from a
place with Internet connection). More information about that will be posted
Something more about our work and the amazing participants we have:
On April 5th, seven of the participants of the Little Circle took part in the challenging
"Purple Comet Math Meet" (<http://purplecomet.org/>). We had two teams presenting the
Little Circle at the meet. . Both teams solved 16 out of 20 problems for the time of the
competition (60 min). We are excited to see what the results form the competitions are
on April 11th.
And the results are in! We are glad to report that the first participation of our two teams
in the Purple Comet Math Meet was a success: out of the 14 middle school's teams from
Florida who competed, Little Circle 2 and Little Circle 1 were ranked 1st and 2nd,
respectively! Little Circle 2 is ranked 31 which makes them a team in the 86th
percentile over all. They are ranked first (and are in the 50th percentile) by state, and
are ranked 18th (the 77th percentile) by country. Little Circle 1 has achieved rank
104 (the 63rd percentile) overall, rank 2 by state, and rank 44 (51st percentile) by nation.
Congratulations to all of the participants!
We are also pleased to report about recent success of four of the participants in the Little Circle who
scored very high on MOEMS 2012/2013: our stellar group of participants did it again! Excellent work guys!
In Division E which goes from 4-6 grade, our results were:
Naige Correal-Winters (6th grade) - Perfect Score in all 5 contests;
Gabriel Diraviam (6th grade) - Perfect Score in all 5 contests;
Chey Sirota (6th grade) - Perfect Score in all 5 contests;
Patrick Correal-Winters (4th grade); Vivek Talwalkar (6th grade)
In Division M which goes up to 8th grade, our results were:
Gold pins are awarded to roughly the top 2%, of the individual scorers,
and silver pins to roughly the rest of the top 10%.
The received scores are for a total of more 103,529 mathletes.
Of these, 484 earned the Medallion with a perfect score of 25 points.
This year's Honor Roll lists their names. We salute them, as well as the
386 students who scored a near perfect 24 points.

Here are the results on MOEMS 2011/2012:
Naige Correal-Winters (5thgrade)- Gold
Some information about this competition.
In 2011/2012 a total of 85,339 students from 24 different countries
participated in Division E (Grades 4-6).
Excellent job, boys!
There are many competitions in Math this spring which will be attended by participants of our Circle.
I wish all of them success, and expect them to share experience at the Circle.
Description of the Program
This is an outreach program
for motivated students from elementary to high school who are interested in
Math Circles were introduced
first in Hungary and other Eastern European countries in order to select
gifted in Mathematics middle and high school students and teach them some
more advanced topics in Elementary Mathematics. One of the goals was to
prepare those students for prestigious math competitions on local, national,
and international level. Traditionally, Math Circles are organized and
directed by research mathematicians who have been participants in such
Circles as students themselves, and have the passion for helping the younger
generation broaden their knowledge in more interesting and deep mathematics.
All that the participants of the Math Circles at FIU need to have is math curiosity and the wish to work on mathematical problems.
This semester, Spring'16, the program will meet every other Saturday, from 2:30 p.m. till 4:00 p.m. at GL 137 of the University Park campus (MMC) of Florida International University. The first meeting (with the Little Circle participants) is on September 10th
