Math Circle Returns for Fall 2022
Two sections each of Middle School and High School Math Circle will be held on-campus. We will also offer two Middle School sections online. All students participating on-campus will be required to submit proof of vaccination (including Booster shot), keeping with Emory policy.
Math Circle Registration
The fall session of Emory Math Circle will begin soon. Students in grades 6 - 12 will be eligible.
In order for you to receive updates about registration, special events, and more, we invite you to join our mailing list and be on the lookout for emails from MailChimp.
Lottery registration has closed, but normal registration is still open. The steps below describe how to register. Depending on demand, we may end up with a waitlist for some levels - but we'll do our best!
Registration Process
Any time before October 1, you may register your children for fall classes. Note that classes begin before this deadline. Please follow the instructions on this page, which describe which classes we are offering this fall, then click on my account in the top menu bar. If this is your first semester with Emory Math Circle, you will need to create a parent account first.
On September 8, our "Lottery" system assigned students to one of our classes. Parents received an email telling them which class their children are enrolled in. Ideally every student gets their most preferred class time, but that is not always possible. The Lottery randomly picks a student, assigns them to their most preferred class that still has room in it, and then repeats until all classes are full.
Students with "priority registration" get assigned to classes before other students. You can check whether or not each of your children have priority registration on their individual student profiles. It is given to students who attended 4 of their 6 sessions last semester. If you think there was a mistake, send us an email including the dates your child attended last semester.
After the lottery ends, you will have until October 1 to register your children for fall classes. Please follow the instructions on this page, which describe which classes we are offering this fall, then click on my account in the top menu bar. If this is your first semester with Emory Math Circle, you will need to create a parent account first. You may enroll your child in any section that is not already full (class capacity is 35 students online, 30 students in-person). The morning of October 1, 2022, registration for fall classes will close. For more details on how to register, see below.
Step 1: Pick Your Level
Choose which level is appropriate for each of your children. Typically, we have five levels, but currently, we have combined the first two: Middle School A and Middle School B. When you have chosen a level for your child, be sure to edit their student profile and select this level as their Math Circle Level. Currently we only offer classes for middle and high school students. After the lottery runs on September 8, if some sections still have empty seats, we can consider allowing 5th grade students to participate on a case by case basis. Please email us after the lottery to discuss this option.
Step 2: Rank the Available Sections
When registering for the lottery, you will need to rank the sections available for your child's level. For some levels, there is only one section available. This semester for planning purposes due to the virtual environment, we have combined Middle School A and Middle School B, which have 2 sections available. Each section of a class (usually) meets every other week, with the full schedules listed below. For each of your children, choose the section that works best for your family's schedule. Please only include sections where you expect to be able to attend at least four of the six sessions.
Note that there are no classes the weekends of October 15 and November 26. If you try to enroll in a section that is full, you will be added to its waitlist.

Step 3: Create A Parent Account (New Families Only)
Click on the my account tab on the top of the page and create a parent account.
Step 4: Create or Update Student Profile(s)
Each student who would like to register must first have a student profile as part of a parent account. 
For new students, a student profile must be created.  Note that there's a checkbox asking if the parent has signed a permission form.  Note that all parents will need to sign a permission form for each of their participating children this semester, with the exception of children who are participating in-person for the second straight semester.
For returning students, the profile must be updated by (re)entering the current grade level in school and the Math Circle level from the dropdown menu. Do this by clicking the "edit" button next to the child's name. You will need to sign the permission form before you can move on to Step 5 below.
Step 5: Register
Once a student profile has been created / updated, return to the Students page. In the "Registration" column, click on the Register button.  This is where you actually pick your preferred sections and enroll your child or add them to the waitlist.
