Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC) welcomes a select group of mathematically talented rising high school juniors and seniors from around the world for intensive online study in advanced mathematics.
SUMaC strives to provide access for high school students to advanced topics in mathematics, in a way that is fun and interesting. The program will lead participants through topics that are of great significance in the historical development of mathematics, that are important to current lines of mathematical research, and that have applications in the sciences.
Participants in Stanford University Mathematics Camp will take part in:
- an intensive course in higher mathematics.
- a guest lecture series covering a range of topics, given by internationally-known research mathematicians.
- group problem-solving sessions and individual tutoring.
The program is designed for current high school 10th and 11th graders (students who will start 11th and 12th grade in the next academic year) who have exceptional interest and ability in mathematics. SUMaC is for those who seek to be challenged in mathematics and those who would enjoy three weeks of intensive, in-depth, mathematics pursuits. SUMaC provides an environment that fosters social and intellectual development centered on the study and enjoyment of mathematics.
SUMaC offers two courses, called Program I and Program II, with unique topics for each course. Each student attends one of the two courses, both of which build on topics central to mathematics through their historical significance and their relevance to current lines of mathematical research. Courses meet daily, Monday–Friday, for live classroom instruction.
