Math problem-solving camps to be offered this summer at Montana State for middle and high school students

Tuesday May. 16th, 2023

BOZEMAN — Montana middle school and high school students passionate about advanced math are invited to attend the Mathematics Circle Summer Camp hosted by the Science Math Resource Center at Montana State University. Participants will immerse themselves in math problem-solving challenges, tour innovative university labs and engage in fun science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, activities.

The camps will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day on the MSU campus. The three-day camps are offered as day camps, with housing options available for out-of-town participants. A camp for middle school students is scheduled for June 12-14; a camp for high school students is scheduled for June 19-21; and a camp for both middle school and high school students is scheduled for Aug. 14-16.

Tuition is $135, which includes lunch and snacks each day. Sponsorships from the MSU College of Education, Health, and Human Development, the MSU Center for Faculty Excellence and the Mathematical Association of America help keep tuition costs low, according to Fenqjen Luo with the Science Math Resource Center.

Camp participants will receive information about enrollment and test readiness for the American Mathematics Competitions, the national math exams conducted by the Mathematical Association of America. Results from these exams are often requested from universities like MIT, Stanford and Caltech, Luo said. These online exams are hosted for Montana students by the MSU Science Math Resource Center.
