It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our dear friend and math circle helper, John Cocharo, passed away. John came to the very first math circle meeting back in 2008 and has been the biggest math circle enthusiast since then. John was a teacher at The Oakridge School from 1998 to 2018 where he served many years as a math department chair.

We extend our sincere sympathy to John’s family. He will be truly missed by all (MC)^2 participants.

————————————-

The next math circle meting for Spring 2020 will be on February 6 (Thursday!) at 7 pm in PKH 311. The tentative schedule of the meetings is as follows:

1/23, 2/6, 2/20, 3/5, 3/19, 4/2, 4/16, 4/30

As usual, our math circle is intended for high-school and advanced middle-school students. Teachers and college students are welcome to the meetings as well.

If you plan to come to our math circle and do not know where to park, a good option is to park at the Garage right next to PKH. Maps of the campus can be downloaded at https://www.uta.edu/maps/
