IMA-MathCEP Math Modeling Camp

2018 IMA-MathCEP Math Modeling Camp for High School Students

July 9-13, 2018

How is math used to solve important problems facing our world today? Mathematical models help us to study the effects of traffic on a bridge, predict trends in population and disease, or estimate the climate’s impact on natural resources.

Format

This week-long summer camp will offer high-school students the chance to use their mathematical skills to analyze real-world situations. Under the supervision of teachers and University faculty, participants will work collaboratively on open-ended modeling problems, develop practical solutions, and present results to their peers. Successful participants may be sponsored by the university for international modeling contests in the 2018-2019 academic year.

Eligibility

Students should currently be enrolled in high school and have completed a year-long course in single variable calculus by the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
