StFX Math Camp
May 18, 2018 - May 20, 2018
The camp is scheduled for May 18-20, 2018 and will be residential in nature. The camp is planned for 28 students in grade 10 and 11 and 3 university students who will serve as chaperones. Invitations will be sent to high schools in Nova Scotia for nominations of maximum per school of two students. The students will be expected to be academically strong and enthusiastic, with strong aptitude for mathematics. In addition to the criteria listed above, selection of the participants is mostly on a first come-first served basis. However, gender and regional balance, recommendation letters and grades will also be considered. The camp will be a two and half days weekend camp to begin at 9:00 am on the Friday and end by 11:30 am on Sunday. There will be about seven sessions that will be presented by faculty to expose the participants to exciting topics and applications in the mathematical sciences. In addition there will be several sessions on math trivia, math relays, and team problem solving to help inspire the participants about the breadth and applicability of the mathematical sciences. It is anticipated that students who attend the camps will develop “new friends, new ideas, and a new outlook on mathematics” (http://cms.math.ca/MathCamps/).
