JAMES Mathematics Circle

The Junior Alberta Mathematics for Eager Students (JAMES) mathematics circle is a group of high-performing junior high school students that meets once or twice a week. Participants explore problems from various mathematics competitions from around the world (Tournament of the Towns, Edmonton Junior High Invitational, International Mathematics Contest, etc.) and learn new problem solving techniques. Participants are exposed to many different areas within mathematics, such as number theory, graph theory, combinatorics, and geometry. All junior high school students (Grades 7-9, and keen Grade 6) interested in learning more mathematics and trying new problems are welcome to participate. To register for the May to August session, visit our departmental Marketplace.

Math Attack Society

Math Attack Society’s various mentoring programs are provided to connect Canadian youth with math, science, and technology. Participants form strong bonds, with a diverse group of junior high students, senior high school students, university students, and community members coming together in the spirit of collaboration and passion for mathematics.
