Math Camps

Starting in 2017, we will offer occasional intensive math camps in various regions.

Our first camp will be held in Irvine, California, from December 26, 2017–January 6, 2018, meeting Tuesday through Saturday for two weeks, from 9 AM until 5 PM, for a total of 80 hours of class time. The class will be on Proofs from THE BOOK: we will discuss some brilliant proofs, as well as the surrounding mathematics and where it leads naturally. The class will cover roughly the same material as our regular class in Winter 2017 did; click here for a description of that class. We will introduce various topics in number theory, combinatorics, linear algebra, abstract algebra, graph theory, fractals and their dimensions, and more along the way!

Like our regular classes, this camp is intended for advanced high-school students, but we also allow younger students to attend if they are prepared.

Each day, we will introduce new material in the morning, and then students will work on problems based on the morning’s material in the afternoon. Problems range in difficulty from straightforward concept-check problems to open research problems: we love to see our students working on research problems and coming up with interesting ideas, and there will be several instructors and TAs present to help out. This is a good way of getting started on an original research project!

The cost of the class is $1200. Lunch will be provided each day of class. Applications are due by October 29th. Click here to apply!
