Mathcamp 2020 will run online: Learn more.
The majority of Mathcamp's students are in North America and Europe, and the academic schedule is designed with this in mind. Our shared day will begin at 9am Pacific (UTC-7), and therefore Pacific Time will be our "Mathcamp Standard Time" (MCST).
Here's what a weekday (Monday through Friday) at Virtual Mathcamp will look like:
|1pm–3pm||Drop in for Time: Academic, Unscheduled (TAU)|
The time designated for TAU during the week will be set aside for TPS on Friday afternoons.
On Saturdays, we'll have "Field Trips" in the morning and Relays on Saturday afternoons to cap off the week.
The official day off is Sunday, and we encourage students to take some time to connect with their households and local communities.
Before and after the core academic day (9am–3pm):
In planning the daily schedule, we're taking into consideration both our campers in a wide range of time zones and the fact of video fatigue. We encourage everybody to take breaks from screens throughout the day!
Here is the global calendar for summer 2020. Camp will begin at 9am Pacific Time (or "Mathcamp Standard Time") on the first Sunday of camp. The first day of camp is a very full day, getting new and returning students oriented to the program and the virtual campus, and having our first academic advising sessions of the summer. Classes begin on Monday and we're off to the races!
