[from the AwesomeMath Newsletter, The Gold Standard]

AMYlogoJust because the summer camp season is behind us for this year doesn’t mean you can’t still work with our AwesomeFaculty on interesting problems.  AwesomeMath Year-Round gives students the chance to continue developing their insights and delve into important mathematical concepts and methods of proofs for problems and challenges that range to the Olympiad level.  Our website describes the program as follows:

“The AMY is broken into six independent segments, each investigating one circle of ideas in depth. Every two months, students receive a packet of materials organized around a set of notes which comprise a short course in the topic. The courses cover each topic from the very basics all the way to fascinating and difficult results; we believe that everyone has something to learn! The notes will be accompanied by scores of problems, running the gamut from simple to quite hard. Students are expected to write up solutions so that we may provide individual feedback and teach the invaluable skill of proof-writing.”
The 2013-2014 segment topics have been posted:

Segment Author Topic
Aug. – Sept. 2013 Titu Andreescu and Cosmin Pohoata Gems in Euclidean Geometry
Oct. – Nov. Titu Andreescu and Cosmin Pohoata Harmonic Divisions Revisited
Dec. 2013 – Jan. 2014 Titu Andreescu and Adithya Ganesh Gems in Algebra
Feb. – Mar. Cosmin Pohoata Topics in Combinatorial Geometry
Apr. – May Titu Andreescu Gems in Number Theory
June – July Titu Andreescu and Adithya Ganesh Sums and Products

Register today for this unique opportunity to work with qualified instructors on Olympiad level math with individualized feedback.

“We believe that Olympiad math is naturally focused on ideas accessible to young people while at the same time provoking boundless intellectual challenges. Olympiad math helps students build creative logical thought, a skill that will be a great asset to them no matter what they choose to do in the future.” ~Dr. Titu Andreescu

crawfordteachIn addition to the Metroplex Math Circle, the Dallas Metroplex will soon be home to another unique institution which will help students develop their mathematical and problem solving skills.  Mathew Crawford, well-known to the global problem solving community for his early work on the Art of Problem Solving and two books in the library of almost every competitive problem solver (Introduction to Number Theory and Intermediate Algebra)  is opening his new school, Daedalus Education.

The new facility is being built out in a convenient location along 75:  3303 North Central Expressway, Suite 270, Plano, TX

Through his previous school and online resources, Mathew Crawford has helped many young problem solvers to realize their full potentialDaedalus Education offers a curriculum designed to inspire and challenge the most gifted problem solvers and evolved from years of working with a wide variety of students.

Mr. Crawford has been interviewing students and teaching assistants for his inaugural courses beginning in the fall.  Families interested in meeting with Mr. Crawford and applying for a spot in one of his classes should contact Daedalus Education as soon as possible.
