Course Descriptions

Elementary

Math Explorers (Grade 1)

"Grow young learners' knowledge and love of all things mathematical..."

This camp is being offered for the fourth time.

Geometry (Grades 2-3)

"'Play' with the relationship between two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes..."

This camp is returning for the second year.

Camp Logic (Grades 3-5)

In this camp, students will experience a playful introduction to the underlying structure of mathematics--deductive reasoning.  

From Zero to Infinity (Grades 4-5)

"Students will explore big numbers with an emphasis on understanding magnitudes..."

This camp is being offered for the fifth time.

Middle School (Grades 6-8)

Exotic Arithmetic

Flex your mathematical muscles with this challenging excursion beyond standard arithmetic into problems and puzzles designed to broaden and deepen your understading.

This is the second year of this camp, but topics will be new, so alumni of last year's camp are very welcome to return! These materials have been developed by Professor Harold Reiter, who has decades of experience teaching at nationally recognized summer math camps.

Girls Topology

Topology is the properties of shapes which don't change under stretching.  For example, a topologist would consider the letters C and V and J to be equivalent!  This camp will be co-taught by MSU Mathematician Dr. Kristen Hendricks and a local middle school math teachers.  Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation, this camp will be offered free of charge to interested middle school girls.  Due to limited space, an application is required; selection will be based on demonstrated interest in mathematics.  Students should register using the standard registration form (without submitting payment) and we will email questions for your daughter to answer regarding her interest.
