Before Camp FAQ
Q:
Can you tell me more about the curriculum that is taught at camp? How should student select their math classes?
A:
The math classes you take are self-selected. If you still do not know which classes to take after reading the curriculum page and the course selection tips page, we can help you. You may need to take a placement test before the camp starts. Please email admin@awesomemath.org for further assistance.
Q:
When do I register for my classes?
A:
You will do sign up for your two math classes after you have paid your tuition in full. This is part of the online student registration forms.
Q:
What is the process for receiving my two books that are included in the cost of my camp tuition? Are these books related to the courses I will be taking at camp?
A:
The two math books are NOT related to the courses you take while at camp. They are intended to enhance your education in mathematics. You will choose your two math books after you have paid your tuition in full. Books will be mailed or delivered to students at camp based on the following:
  • Cornell & Univ. of Puget Sound Students with a US Shipping Address – your books will be mailed after your tuition is paid in full and your student registration forms are complete.
  • UT Dallas – all students will receive their books at the end of camp. We will not ship your books.
  • International Students with a non-US Shipping Address – delivered at the end of the camp(s) they attend.
Q:
Where can I find the packing list?
A:
The packing list will be accessed on the Student Dashboard, once a student is accepted and has paid their tuition in full.
Q:
Are students supposed to bring computers?
A:
Laptops are permitted but not necessary or recommended. Internet access will be available to students on campus and in their rooms. We leave it up to the parents to decide whether or not a student should bring computers or other electronics.
Q:
I’m an international student. What type of Visa do I need to attend the AwesomeMath Summer Program?
A:
You will need a Visitor Visa. Once you have paid your tuition, we will email you an invitation to attend our camp which is what you will use to obtain the Visitor Visa. No TOEFL is required.
Q:
What if, based on our travel plans, my child needed to arrive a day or two early before the start of camp?
A:
It is not possible for your child to be taken care of by AwesomeMath staff before the camp starts. Even though staff arrives early, they will be very busy preparing for camp.
Q:
I would like to carpool or arrange my flight with other students in my area traveling to camp. Can you provide me with that information?
A:
Please email admin@awesomemath.org, any time after April 3, 2018. For security purposes we can only provide you with a parent name and their email. You will be responsible for contacting the parents and coordinating this. We will not give out student names or any other personal information about our campers or families.
Q:
What if my I need to revise or update my travel arrangements (i.e. airline changes my flight number, arrival/departure time, flight is cancelled, etc.)?
A:
If you need to revise or update your travel information, simply log back into the student dashboard and make the necessary changes (as long as it is before the stated deadline). However, please contact our Camp Directors directly at admin@awesomemath.org if your travel arrangements change two weeks before the start of camp.
Q:
Is it possible to request a private/single room?
A:
It will depend on the dormitory options assigned to us by each University. Most students will have a roommate. If single rooms are made available to our students, then we do our best (although we cannot guarantee) to assign students, on a first-come-first-serve basis, to a single room, when requested. Room and roommate requests are made via the online student registration forms which you complete after you pay your tuition in full.
Q:
Is it possible for siblings of the same gender to room together? Is it possible for siblings of the opposite gender to room together?
A:
In most cases, we can assign same gender siblings as roommates, if requested, as long as there is not an age difference of more than two years. Opposite gender siblings cannot share a room.
