AwesomeMath Summer Program

The AwesomeMath Summer Program is an intensive three-week program for gifted students from around the globe. It is designed for bright middle and high school students who wish to hone their problem solving skills in particular and further their mathematics education in general. Many of our participants seek to improve their performance on contests such as AMC10/12, AIME, or USAMO.

As many as 97% of our students say they would recommend our summer program to their peers. Additionally, many of these students return each summer to not only further their education, but to re-connect with the friends they made.

Students interested in participating in our Summer Program must first be admitted through our application process. Learn more about how to apply.

The AwesomeMath Summer Experience
In-Person

Our residential camps balance a rigorous mathematics curriculum and program, with a wide-range of activities that allow our campers to connect on multiple levels. Sports, games, and a talent show are a few examples of activities offered at the residential camps.

What makes our camp different? We emphasize collaborative problem solving and provide enriching activities within a community of gifted mathematicians from all over the world. AwesomeMath campers are so much more than their math abilities. They are scientists, musicians, engineers, and, of course, mathematicians with multiple worldviews, cultures, and backgrounds. This creates a unique experience for collaboration, connections, and community. Our campers find mentors and peers who can make a positive impact on their future.

Since 2006, we have hosted summer camps at UT Dallas, Cornell University, Berkeley University, University of Puget Sound, University of California at Santa Cruz and San Jose University.

***COVID-19 UPDATE***
Due to the COVID 19 situation, AwesomeMath’s current plan is to offer multiple online summer program sessions for 2021. We are actively monitoring the latest information about the pandemic and the directives from health and government officials. We are hoping that in 2022 it will be feasible to offer students a safe and great in-person camp experience.

Online

Our virtual AwesomeMath Summer Program experience offers a great alternative to the residential summer camps! Students have access to the same rigorous curriculum and great instructors as the residential camps. Admitted students choose their course load. Each live instructor-led course meets 5 days a week for 2 1/2 hours. All classes are recorded for students who have to miss a class or for those needing to reinforce what they are learning.

Our staff has worked very hard to ensure the quality of instruction in the online classes matches that of our in-person camps. We have designed the structure of the online program so that distance is not a barrier to a student’s learning. Students will be able to have the same meaningful experience through our online platform by being able to see teachers in real time as if they were in the classroom. Students are able to ask questions verbally and through a text chat. Our veteran faculty members, who have participated in our previous summer camps, are excited to explore this learning avenue and deliver a rigorous mathematics curriculum.

International Influence

Much of the AwesomeMath experience revolves around expanding our students’ worldview. We want them to see past the standard curriculum, past their own methods for problem solving, and past the borders of their own city/state/country.

Our staff and students come together from all over the world. They share their love of mathematics. They share their culture. They share their problem-solving styles and methods. This allows for personal growth, and in today’s global economy, crossing borders, not just of knowledge, but geographical, is more important than ever.
