About the Book

Moscow has a rich tradition of successful math circles, to the extent that many other circles are modeled on them. This book presents materials used during the course of one year in a math circle organized by mathematics faculty at Moscow State University, and also used at the mathematics magnet school know as Moscow School Number 57.

Each problem set has a new topic, Offering problems in a range of difficulty levels. This time-tested pattern has proved its effectiveness in engaging all students and helping them master new material while building on earlier knowledge.

The introduction describes in detail how the math circles at Moscow State University are run. Dorichenko describes how the early sessions differ from later session, how to choose problems, and what sort of difficulties may arise when running a circle. The book also includes a selection of problems used in the competition known as the Mathematical Maze, a mathematical Circle , which is run in the Russian style.
