One of the newest but most distinguished summer camps for young problem solvers is AwesomeMath. AwesomeMath draws faculty and students from around the country and around the world. This year AwesomeMath will occur in two separate sessions on two campuses, our own UTD campus and the University of California, Santa Cruz.
We will be providing more information on AwesomeMath in the coming weeks, but here is the basic information from the AwesomeMath website:
What? A three-week intensive summer camp for mathematically gifted students from around the globe. This is an initiative in response to numerous requests from parents and teachers of bright students who have not yet shone at the Olympiad level, as well as of those wishing to expand what they have learned in programs such as MATHCOUNTS. These talented students wish to hone their problem solving skills in particular and further their mathematics education in general. Many of our participants seek to improve their performance on contests such as AMC10/12, AIME, or USAMO.
When? July 6 – 27, 2009 and July 31 – August 21, 2009.
Who? over 100 students in grades 7-11, distinguished faculty, a large group of mentors and assistants .
Why? To offer gifted math students the opportunity to attend a high-quality summer program. You may access the AMSP 2009 Academic Curriculum here.
