CMS/UPEI Math Camp

May 4, 2018 - May 6, 2018
University of Prince Edward Island Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada + Google Map

UPEI Math Camp is held in early May each year, bringing together some of PEI's top high school students for a weekend of mathematically-oriented education and entertainment. Students participate in group problem solving, math relays, math trivia, a career information session, and sessions with faculty. Hopefully, students leave with a broader view of mathematics, in both its intrinsic beauty and its practical utility, and with motivation to continue their math studies in the future.
