Summer enrichment programs for students entering grades
3-12 are held in the Twin Cities at the University of Minnesota.
The common purpose of these programs is to keep young students interested in mathematics. Programs do this in three ways: first, by immersing students in mathematics coursework; second, by introducing students to positive role models; and third, by fostering friendships. Students thrive intellectually when working with students who, like themselves, enjoy being challenged in math and science. Experimental, visual, numerical, and analytical concepts teach students skills critical to science, engineering, and mathematics. Institutes foster teamwork and clear communication of complex ideas.
During the summer 2012, MathCEP will only be offering programs to targeted individuals who are participating in either GEM or the UMTYMP program already.
