Extended Math Camp

At ASU's Extended Math Camp, students participated, alongside teachers, in dynamic afternoon sessions with the AMMASING program focusing on:

  • High school mathematics from new perspectives
  • The work of teaching and research on how people learn mathematics

In addition, theyworked with peers from a variety of backgrounds in ASU's Math Camp, a fast-paced and exciting evening program specifically designed to:

  • Enhance knowledge of both familiar and unfamiliar mathematics
  • Build confidence in one's mathematical ability and excitement about the subject
  • Ability and excitement about the subject

Students will also participate in a school year program with several elements:

  • A series of investigations focused on exploring familiar mathematics and the work of teaching. The investigations embody the quote above - opportunities to consider common topics in deep ways.
