Welcome!

Math! Games! Puzzles! Prizes! Gourmet food! Great company!

Our next meeting of the Philadelphia Area Math Teachers' Circle is January 28th, 2014! Collaborate with fellow math teachers (grades 5-9) and professional mathematicians, working on solving fun, challenging math puzzles together and discussing problem-solving in your classrooms. This meeting is free and will provide you with many resources and opportunities for building your teaching network and sharpening your students' problem-solving skills.

**Send RSVP or any questions to philamtc@gmail.com.**


Welcome to the website of the Philadelphia Area Math Teachers' Circle (PAMTC)! We are a group of teachers, mathematicians, and math education researchers, bringing an MTC to the Philadelphia area! MTCs are like "book groups" for middle grades (approx. grades 5-9) math teachers; at MTC workshops and meetings, we use a collaborative problem-solving model--that is, we all work together to discuss, debate, interrogate, and solve challenging, fun math puzzles. These puzzles are NOT your routine math problems; but do not be intimidated: all that is required to participate is a healthy dose of curiosity, good humor, and a willingness to interrogate! MTCs are also great networking opportunities, and of course, we always hope to provide great food!

Want an insiders view of a MTC? Please read Brian's blog post about his experience at the summer immersion workshop. 


We would like to thank our generous sponsors: the Verizon Foundation, the American Institute of Mathematics and the Mathematical Association of America, The Philadelphia Ed Fund and the National Association of Math Circles!

Thank you for visiting!
