The purpose of this article is to describe the preparation and implementation of a mathematics circle in Northeastern Ohio. Math Circles encourage the enjoyment, appreciation and knowledge of mathematics through problem solving and guided discovery. Also documented is the close collaboration teachers, students, and university personnel share. All aspects of the program are discussed with references to Russian Math Circles. While the Math Circle's goal is to develop reasoning and problem solving skills, students come to enjoy, appreciate, and expand their knowledge of mathematics.
