The Triangle Math Teachers’ Circle welcomes anybody interested in the teaching profession, at any level, with an interest in learning and practicing the pedagogical approaches of math circles aimed at the development of creative problem-solving skills through interactive and fun activities.

 The initiative is hosted by the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University and is supported by a grant from the American Institute of Mathematics. The Teachers’ circle collaborates with the Chapel Hill Math Circle for K-12 students and is a member organization of the Math Teachers’ Circle Network and the North Carolina Network of Math Teachers’ Circles.
