LSU Math Circle: High School Math Research Program


The LSU Math Circle: High School Mathematics Research Program is a collaborative outreach program between the LSU Department of Mathematics and the LSU Cain Center that provides high school students with the opportunity to conduct mathematical research with guidance from professors and graduate students. High school students join a small research group based on their interest in a research topic. Each research group is comprised of four high school students led by a research mentor. Research groups meet virtually Monday through Friday for 2 to 3 hours over the course of three weeks to conduct math research on a selected topic. The program culminates in a poster presentation for students to present their research projects.

Students interested in participating in the program will need to review and select one of the posted research topics and have their parents complete the online registration form. Each research topic is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Abstracts of research topics are posted below and updated regularly.

Upon completion of the program, each student will receive the following:

  • an LSU Certificate of Completion
  • the original source and PDF files of the student's final presentation
  • a video of the student's presentation

Moreover, students may have the opportunity to continue and expand on their research after the program.
