Why come to Mathcamp?

Mathcamp is a chance to…

  • Live and breathe mathematics that is fascinating, deep, difficult, fun, mysterious, abstract, interconnected (and sometimes useful).
  • Gain mathematical knowledge, skills and confidence – whether for a possible career in math and science, for math competitions, or just for yourself.
  • Set and pursue your own educational goals: choose your classes, do a project, learn what you want to learn.
  • Study with mathematicians who are passionate about their subject, from internationally known researchers to graduate students at the start of their careers, all eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you.
  • Make friends with students from around the world and discover how much fun it is to be around people who think math is cool.
