Math Circle and Chess Class

MATH CIRCLE 2016/2017

WorldSpeak presents an intensive math program based on the UCLA Math Circle curriculum. The approach we use helps a child to develop mathematical thinking and acquire deep understanding of mathematical concepts, which help in succeeding in math and life in the future.

The program is designed to be fun and entertaining. Most of the time, children don’t even think that our course is a math class as it naturally feels engaging and interesting.

UCLA Math Circle Satellite at WorldSpeak taught by UCLA Math Professor Dr. Oleg Gleizer and WorldSpeak Math Teachers Narek, Angelika and Maria.
