Math Circle Competition Team

at Louisiana State University

Established in 2012, the Math Circle Competition Team (MCCT) meets weekly on LSU's campus to practice for national-level high school math and coding competitions. We hold math practice every Sunday from 1:30PM-3:00PM and coding practice from 3:00PM-4:30PM. Math Circle helps to subsidize competition expenses like travel and housing, minimizing per student cost of tournament attendance. The math team's coaches are Steven Olsen and Amy Adair; the coding team's coach is Josh Parnell. If you are a local high schooler interested in joining the team, please email us at contact@mathcircle.us. The math tournaments we compete in are found below.
