Math CEO Program

UCI MATH CEO is a free mathematical enrichment program developed by faculty at UC Irvine to serve the underprivileged community of Santa Ana. Every week (for a total of 24 times throughout the academic year), a group of ~100 middle school students are brought to the UCI campus to work on fun but challenging mathematics activities with the help of (~35) UCI faculty, graduate and undergraduate mentors and learn about college and STEM careers. The program not only introduces kids to critical thinking at a young age, but provides a roadmap to a college education in STEM and hope for a brighter future. The educational materials created by the Math CEO team are freely available on this website (link to “learning materials"). To increase the quality of the program, weekly training is provided to mentors. Founded in Fall 2014, the UCI Math CEO has quickly grown to be one of the largest math circles in the country that specifically targets underserved youth.





  • Mission

    The UC Irvine Math CEO program is commited to offering free enrichment activities in mathematics for middle school students in underserved communities, and creating free educational materials to be used in classrooms around the world.

  • Goal

    An essential goal of the Math CEO program is to encourage students in underserved communities in Southern California to pursue a college degree in STEM fields through a solid educational foundation and adequate planning for college entrance and financial requirements.

  • College Preparations

    Annually, we share information about college entrance requirements and financial aid attainment with families during evening meetings at the middle schools their children attend. Field trips are organized for students and parents to visit the UC Irvine campus to experience campus life and to directly interact with UCI students and faculty.

  • STEM Careers

    Many careers require working with mathematics on a daily basis. We will share the educational materials that we have created throughout the development of our program. These materials will be presented before every meeting.
