The program is designed for students who will be entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in high school and who have an interest in enriching their mathematics education.  During the one-week program students will explore several branches of mathematics, including:

  • Knot Theory
  • Number Theory
  • The mathematics of puzzles and games
  • Cryptography - how public-key cryptography works and how to create your own codes
  • An introduction to the mathematics of finance
  • Statistics for the Biological Sciences

Why Summer mathematics? Students will attend lectures about topics in mathematics from experts in the field and will work on projects that will further their understanding of the topic. In addition, there will be fun and games with mathematics.

Why this program? You will be exposed to advanced subjects that you won't see in school. You will interact with students from other  schools who are also fascinated by math. You will get to know professors on a one-on-one basis. And, most of all, you will have fun!
