LUMS Math Circles


What are Math Circles?

LUMS Math Circles is a project launched in 2021 by the LUMS math department. We identified a gap between students' interest in math and the extent to which they are able to explore the subject. In an increasingly competitive world, it is important we provide opportunities for students to practice and hone their skills of problem-solving in mathematical sciences. In its first year, LUMS Math Circles gained funding from LUMS itself.

Our circles are open for students from grade 6 till 12/A Level. At LUMS Math Circles, our participants get the opportunity to interact with other students from different schools around Lahore, allowing them to share their passion for math with students who have similar interests. It is an entirely unique paradigm of coaching mathematics by engaging our students' skills through problem solving techniques. 

LUMS Math Circles is becoming an increasingly important platform and a benchmark outreach program for promoting Mathematics at grass root level. Through our collaboration with Pakistan Alliance for Math and Sciences, STEAM Pakistan the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training, we organized the first National summit of Pakistani universities:  Experiential Workshop on Evolving Math Circles Outreach in Pakistan during June 23-24, 2022. We are leading the mathematics promotional activities in Pakistan through LUMS MATH CIRCLES as the pioneer institute.
