Applications are now being accepted for children who will be entering grades five through nine in fall 2008 for the “Maryland Summer Center for Mathematics: Art of Problem Solving, Algebra, Statistics, and Geometry with Technology.” The program will be held at Frostburg State University from July 21 through Aug. 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The program provides students with the opportunity to form friendships and be challenged by other students with similar interests and talents. Students will participate in activities covering interesting content that is not offered in school curriculum. They will also use and receive the computer software “Terrapin Logo” to explore basic geometric concepts. Students will also learn to use other high-powered mathematical software, such as Maple and Minitab.
Dr. Laxman Hegde, from the Frostburg State University Math Department, and a teaching team of two other Frostburg State University mathematics professors, a high school mathematics teacher and three teaching assistants will direct the camp. There will also be two or more guest lectures from experts in the field of mathematics.
The program is non-residential; the cost is $225.00. Scholarships are available. For more information, contact Dr. Laxman Hegde at 301-687-4384, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also visit the program Web site at www.foundationmath.com.
