Questions & Answers

Every year, we do annual live Q&A sessions ("Math Jams") about Mathcamp and the application process. This year, we will be hosting a live info session (a Math Jam) at the Art of Problem Solving website on Thursday, February 15th, 2018 at 7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT, answering questions about the program and the application process.

The event is free and open to the public. To attend, you must have an account at Art of Problem Solving at www.artofproblemsolving.com. Follow their instructions for "Math Jams":


If you can't make the live event, you'll be able to read the transcript afterwards. You can also check out the transcripts from past Jams: we've answered zillions of questions!

As always: if you have questions about Mathcamp that aren't covered on the website (or at the Jam), please contact us and we'll be happy to talk to you about the program. You can also post questions in the Mathcamp forum at the Art of Problem Solving - the Mathcamp staff will post replies, and you'll get student opinions, too.
