## At the end of each year's Maui Math Circle Program, we have students and parents fill out a feedback survey. Here is what they had to say about their experience with Maui Math Circle.

## This is what students had to say about the Maui Math Circle Program:

I like Maui Math Circle because it teaches interesting math that the schools don't focus on too much. I learned about word problems, area and perimeter, and mean, median, mode, and range. The classes are always great!!

-3rd Grade Student

I like that we do activities after we learn something. This year, I learned about perimeter and area.

-3rd Grade Student

I like that we learn challenging math that can increase our brain knowledge. I've learned about probability, geometry, and more.

-4th Grade Student

I like Maui Math Circle because it helps you learn more advanced things. I learned how to find the probability that two coins both land on heads. My favorite activity this year was the buzzer games because I am very competitive and it was a lot of fun.

-4th Grade Student

I like Maui Math Circle because we get to learn and make friends. I learned advanced stuff that I didn't learn in school.

-5th Grade Student

I like how you can learn advanced math. At school I am bored because I know how to do the math so I am not challenged. I liked learning the new math strategies because they are new and challenging to figure out.

-5th Grade Student

I like Maui Math Circle because I meet new people, learn new things, and challenge myself. I have learned many formulas to solve different problems like how to find the volume of a cylinder. I also learned different measurements and what symbols in math mean. My favorite activity was when we joined with the 4th graders and we split into teams and each team tried to get as many points as possible.

-5th Grade Student

I learned about volume and percentage. My favorite activity this year is the auction. I like it because they give you fake money and you can buy things.

-5th Grade Student

I've learned how to use Venn diagrams in math, get probability, and many other things. I like studying math the most not only because I got to learn math but I also got to share my passion. I enjoyed everything, thank you!

## This is what students had to say about the middle and high school student instructors/volunteers for the Maui Math Circle:

I like the Maui Math Circle instructors and volunteers because they are fun when they teach you.

-3rd Grade Student

I like the instructors and volunteers because they help us on whatever we don't know.

-3rd Grade Student

I really like Maui Math Circle because the teachers are nice. They always help me when I need help. If the volunteers didn't come I would not be awesome at math.

-4th Grade Student

I like them because they're great teachers and they are funny.

-4th Grade Student

I like the Maui Math Circle instructors and volunteers. They come to the school to teach us. They take the time our of their life to come help us learn.

-5th Grade Student

I like the Maui Math Circle instructors and volunteers because they are nice, polite, respectful, and funny.

-5th Grade Student

What I like about Maui Math Circle is the help you get when you don't know an answer.

-5th Grade Student

I like the volunteers because they are not only smart but funny.

## This is what parents had to say about the Maui Math Circle Program:

I love that the Maui Math Circle uses students to teach students - I think it's a great program for both the teachers and the learners. My son loved the volunteers, and I was so impressed with their abilities to teach the younger students. I love that Maui Math Circle is free, and that it creates enthusiasm in students for math. I really hope this program can continue, it has been one of our favorite activities for our son since we moved here a few years ago. Thanks!

Continue the great work in teaching our future Scientists, Technicians, Engineers and Mathematicians.

I really appreciate older students helping the younger students, I think it's a great peer support system and community building event. Of course the math concepts are wonderful too. The volunteers are very nice and supportive, and I hear a lot of praise at the end of the day from the volunteers to the students, and it's very touching and genuine.

It gave my son a regularly scheduled event to look forward to and anticipate. Thank you for coordinating this worthwhile project!

I like that Maui Math Circle expands my son's knowledge & challenges him. He gets bored in school because he knows the material that they are currently covering. I like having the children collaborate with kids from other schools. I like that they make math fun and they are exposed to math in action.

My son likes learning new material and meeting other kids excited about math. He comes home wanting to share what he learned. It's awesome because he looks forward to attending Maui Math Circle on a Saturday!

It was no cost, students were the teachers. I love that students were the teachers because my daughter opened up and asked more questions than to her usual teacher. Convenient location is another positive plus as well as separation of class to the current grade.

We liked how our kids looked forward to going to the program. The instructors were able to connect with the kids and also made it enjoyable. This was a tremendous opportunity to get additional assistance in mathematics.

Encourages Youth to strive for better math skills.

My child was fully enjoying the idea that older kids were teaching them instead of grown-ups. The students who were teaching know how to treat them. Exposure of advanced math to this age is great!

My child has learned a lot from Math Circle. She has more confidence in asking for help in the classroom.

Encourages my daughter to further her math skills and interests outside of the classroom.
