The Bard Math Circle will offer its second annual Creative and Analytical Math Program (CAMP) for students entering grades 6-9 in the fall (priority will be given to rising 7th and 8th graders). Returning CAMPers are encouraged to apply!
Dates: August 24-28, 2015
Time: 9am - 3:30pm
Location: Bard College Campus
The program is intended for middle school students who have mastered the material in their math class, and are ready to tackle higher challenges. The curriculum includes mathematical problem solving, mathematical proof, computer science, and mathematical crafts. There is a focus on hands-on math, teamwork, insightful thinking and mathematical creativity.
The staff is composed of experienced math educators, many of whom majored in mathematics while at Bard College, and teaching assistants who are current undergraduate math majors. Our teaching goals are to expose local middle school students to high-level mathematical thought and topics not frequently encountered at school, and to inspire them to enjoy math and learn more.
