SUMMER MATH CAMPS
Summer (July): July 15 – 19, 2019
Summer (August): August 12 – 16, 2019
Grades 3-8
Cost: $339*
St George Campus near College St

Registration is now open.

Parents/guardians should enroll their child in the camp for the grade they will be going into in September. Students in grades 3 – 5 and 6 – 8 will be placed into a section based on their score on an online placement quiz completed prior to the program. The quiz will be emailed to registrants. The camp offers sections of camp for kids who are in the process of building comfort with mathematics and need to get inspired as well as for kids who are already engaged and in need of further enrichment.

The camps are divided into 4 categories:

  • Inspiring Math Minds (Grades 3 – 5; Grades 6 – 8):
    This program is designed to help students build their confidence and skills with mathematics. Through hands-on, fun-filled activities, the program assists students to build their strength and confidence with the subject and helps inspire them to experience it more fully.
  • Enriching Math Minds (Grades 3 – 5; Grades 6 – 8): This program is designed to challenge students to enrich their already strong skills in mathematics. Through hands-on, fun-filled activities, students will put their math skills to the test with challenging problems and concepts.
  • Math FUNdamentals (Grade 2): Participants will approach fundamental math concepts through a balance of hands-on activities, games, and pencil-and-paper math to help reinforce important concepts and skills. This program teaches and reinforces topics from the grade 1 and 2 curriculum with the aim of building a strong foundation for math learning and fostering confidence and a positive attitude about math.

Camps run from 9am – 4pm, Monday to Friday. We also offer an early drop off starting at 8am and a late pick up which runs until 6pm to all participants free of charge (no additional sign up is required to participate). Please note that there is no early drop-off program on the Monday morning of the camp and check-in opens at 8:15am on Monday.

All students are provided with snacks twice per day, and a break from 12 – 1pm each day for lunch (not provided).

SUMMER MATH ACADEMY
Summer (August): August 12 – 16, 2019
Grades 9-12, or very strong Grade 7-8 students
Cost: $400 + tax*
St George Campus near College St.

Registration is open now.

The Mathematics Academy Programs are aimed at providing Grades 9 – 12 students with experience in Mathematics and Mathematics Research. The program strives to introduce students to concepts not typically covered in the standard curriculum.

Students will gain knowledge and skills in various aspects of mathematics and will have a chance to meet with members of the department currently involved in mathematics research.

The purpose of this program is to introduce students to an in-depth topic which is not normally covered in the curriculum. Rather than lectures, the program will be run with a heavy “discovery” component, where students do most of the work by working in carefully selected problems to figure results by themselves. The topic will be creative, fun, and somewhat abstract; in other words, what mathematicians consider “real math”.

All students are provided with snacks and a break from 12 – 1pm each day for lunch (not provided).

SUMMER HIGH SCHOOL MATH PREPARATION PROGRAM
Two weeks of August, 2019, August 6-9 and 12-16, 10am – 2pm daily
Grades 8 – 10
Cost: $325 + tax*
St George Campus near College St
Contact: outreach@math.toronto.edu

Please check the program page for most updated information.

The High School Math Preparation Program is aimed at students in grades 8 – 10 who are lagging behind the rest of the class in mathematics, but otherwise have demonstrated an ability to learn at grade level in other courses. The intent is to provide students with a unique learning environment where they can regain their confidence while filling in the gaps in their knowledge of mathematics.

This program will target main topics in the Ontario Curriculum leading up to grade 8 and 9 and is not meant as a enrichment of the 8/9 curriculum.

This program is not for credit and while students are provided with a certificate of completion there is no official transcript for this course.

The French Camp is for children who are presently in French Immersion studies and routinely speak French in the home. The program is not suitable for children who do not speak French.
