AIM Math Teachers’ Circle – Stanford
Welcome to the AIM Math Teachers’ Circle at Stanford! We are a professional community of teachers and mathematicians who love solving fun, challenging math problems. Founded at the American Institute of Mathematics in 2006, the AIM Math Teachers’ Circle is the original member of the national Math Teachers’ Circle Network.
In December 2014, the American Institute of Mathematics moved from its Palo Alto location to the Fry’s Electronics Corporate Headquarters in San Jose. AIM reopened on January 1, 2015, in its new location at 600 East Brokaw Road, San Jose. In February 2015, the Math Teachers’ Circle began meeting twice a month, at AIM and at Stanford.
