Santa Cruz Math Teachers’ Circle

Santa Cruz Math Teachers’ Circle

Welcome to the Santa Cruz Math Teachers’ Circle! Founded in 2009, our mission is to promote a culture of mathematical problem solving among teachers in Santa Cruz County, as well as to provide a forum to discuss curriculum and classroom issues in a relaxed atmosphere. We meet once per month to explore a math problem chosen or developed by a math professor at UC Santa Cruz. These math problems will be challenging, enjoyable, fascinating, and accessible to those with a knowledge of basic algebra and arithmetic.

The Santa Cruz MTC meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. Meetings are free, and include dinner. Teachers can earn PD units for attendance.


A different member hosts a meeting each month, either in their classroom or at their home.
