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”.
