#### Mid-Cities Math Circle (MC)² Seminar

**Goals**: The main goal of the Mid-Cities Math Circle seminar is to provide a stimulating environment for local area middle- and high-school students to learn mathematics. Regular attendance of the **(MC)²** seminar will help students not only improve their individual problem-solving skills, but also enjoy and understand mathematics better. More specifically the Mid-Cities Math Circle seminar will

- attract students’ attention to mathematics and motivate them to excel in the subject;
- prepare students for mathematical contests;
- introduce them to the beauty of advanced mathematical theories;
- encourage them to pursue careers related to mathematics such as scientists, educators, engineers, economists, and business leaders.

**General Information**: The seminar runs weekly in the Fall and Spring Semesters. **(MC)²** is designed for students in 8th-12th grades. students in lower grades are welcome as well but should be advised that a solid mathematical background is required in order to follow the discussions.

**Applying for the (MC)² Seminar**: There is no cost for attending the seminar. If you want to participate in the Mid-Cities Math Circle, please send an e-mail with your name, grade and your school name to Dr. Dimitar Grantcharov at **grandim@uta.edu**.

Hi, are there any good problem solving books you can recommend to learn from at the levels of AMC 8, AMC 10/12, IMO, Putnam. I would like to get an early start education similar to that you give here at Mid Cities. I am unable to attend a math circle. What problem solving books would best prepare me to be a mathematician?

Hi Kay,

Thanks for the message. Unfortunately, we do not recommend any books as we avoid advertising in any form. Sorry not to be of much help.

Regards,

Dimitar
