Unpossible NL's Math Circles program offers free, once-weekly meet-ups for students in grades 5 - 8. With the help of a Circle leader, students will explore amazing mathematical ideas through hands-on, collaborative games and activities. Through their own questions and exploration, they'll go from playing a simple card game to discovering things like infinity and triangular numbers. 
 
Our goals:
1) Show students that math is social, creative and amazing.
2) Give students who don't consider themselves "math kids" a supportive, non-competitive, student-led environment in which they develop the creative courage to ask questions, test out ideas, and tackle problems.
 
We'll be offering Circles for students in grades 5 and 6, and Circles for students in grades 7 and 8. Circles will be held downtown at Common Ground Coworking and at the Rabbittown Community Centre. A third location is still to be determined. Circles will meet for 1 - 1.5 hours a week, once a week, for four weeks.
 
We've put together this survey so we can get some information from parents and best serve their kids' needs and schedules. Thanks so much for filling it out!
