Summer Camps for Students
Each summer MathCEP runs a variety of summer programs, often in collaboration with other centers at the University.
In 2020, all summer programs were online. We hope to return to in-person programs on campus in Summer 2021. Programs for the upcoming summer are generally announced in March.
Summer 2020 Programs
IMA-MathCEP Math Modeling Camp for High School Students. Use math to analyze real-world situations. For students currently in high school who will have completed a calculus course by June 2020. The Summer 2020 camp focused on modeling the spread of diseases.
Girls Talk Math. In 2020, we joined a network of sites around the country offering this program to high school students. The goal is to make advanced mathematics accessible to students of underrepresented genders in STEM; see more information about our Minnesota site.
UMTYMP Summer Camp. Instead of acceleration, our summer camp for UMTYMP students focuses on enrichment, and gives our instructors a chance to share their favorite mathematics with UMTYMP students. For UMTYMP students who are completing Algebra or Math Analysis this year; see the courses' Canvas pages for more information.
Online Math Explorations: In Summer 2020 we ran an online version of the UMTYMP Summer Camp which was open to all middle school students.
