Math Circles for New Audiences
Delta Squad is an afterschool math circle program running in cooperation with the San Francisco 49ers Academy and the Ravenswood school district of East Palo Alto. We held our first sessions with 7th and 8th graders in January 2017.
Δ (Delta) is a mathematical symbol used to represent change. Delta Squad's mission is to bring the core of the math circle experience to new audiences and underserved communities, engaging students with fun mathematical puzzles, games and problem-solving activities that will develop their skills in abstract reasoning while giving them a deeper appreciation of what mathematics can be and encouraging them to recognize their own capacity to do and learn math.
