The Celebration of the EDGE Program's Impact on the Mathematics Community and Beyond

Abstract

Math Circles are extracurricular programs organized by mathematicians, aimed at introducing K-12 students or teachers to novel and interesting mathematics in a collaborative environment. While other authors have discussed the impact of Math Circles on participants, this article explores ways that Math Circles have substantial impact on the professional growth of faculty involved. We hope our experiences and commentary will inspire more faculty to become involved with Math Circles both locally and nationally.
