"I would really recommand all the students who are willing to learn more about math and to have a great summer to come to AwesomeMath."
"Awesome math is a good program and it lets you meet new people with the same interests. I would recommend this camp for other people!"
"AMSP strengthened my skills in geometry and opened my eyes to combinatorics. I was always lagging in counting and probability, but my Math Counts with Proofs class showed me techniques that gave me confidence in the topic. I would say it went from my worse topic to one of my best ones."
"This camp left great memories, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have fun doing lots of math."
"Awesome math was a great experience for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves mathematics."
"I never thought I could get sick of math. But this is the essence of this camp here, pushing us out of our comfort zone and constantly challenge ourselves. This is exactly what summer camps should be like - providing the opportunity to do something you won’t be able to do in the academic school year. Came here with doubts, left without regrets."
"Awesome math was great. I made many good friends, and this camp opened my eyes to higher level mathematics."
"The experience is wonderful as math lovers come together and strive to be better in mathematics."
"AMSP was a great experience! All the staff were very helpful, the rec activities were well planned, and everything ran smoothly. Most importantly, the instructors and TAs were helpful and supportive."
"Math was always my strongest subject in school and I never felt challenged in school. The only difficulty I had in math were the competitions, like the AMC. What you can't do makes it even more alluring and math competitions became intriguing. Coming to AwesomeMath was one of the best experiences I ever had. I never had a bad day at this camp. Not a single one. This is my second year at this camp. Last year sparked my interesting in the entire realm of math and was the major factor that lead me to the decision that I was going to be a math major. After that year, I would be addicted to math, doing practice competitions and immersing myself with problem strategies.
Completing the summer session this year helped me develop so many problem strategies. My weaknesses became my strengths and I learned more in these three short weeks than what I taught myself in an entire year of school. I met so many different people from various parts of the world, from various different states like Ohio, Minnesota, California, New Jersey, etc to different countries like Britain, China, and South Korea. Learning about the backstories and how their daily lives differ from mine was truly amazing and gave me a better sense of the world. Everyone here was incredibly smart and I felt so proud of myself just being associated with these people with such stellar and distinguished accomplishments whether they were mathematical accomplishments or others. AwesomeMath was an eye opener and has changed me for the better."
"AwesomeMath is one of my most favorite places to be in the whole world. All three of my years here, I got so much out of it. I’m amazed at how many friends and connections I made aside from learning higher level mathematics, and I would recommend anybody with a true passion for math to come to this camp."
"AwesomeMath is a great way to spend your summer and a great way to make friends with similar interests"
"AwesomeMath was everything I expected and hoped it would be, but it also had good things I didn't anticipate. I met people who were amazingly good at math, like an IMO gold medalist and someone who qualified for AIME seven times, which is just fun. I became motivated to do more math outside the camp and my math classes. And, of course, I learned so much math that I didn't even think existed."
"Awesome Math at Cornell was so much fun. All of the teachers were very helpful and supportive. My resident assistant was also very supportive and reliable. All of the students here were open minded and very fun to hang out with."
"Extremely helpful academically wise, but also extremely fun and a worthwhile experience"
"AwesomeMath has been a wonderful experience for me as a whole. I’ve had lots of fun learning math and participating in various activities throughout camp. This has been an AWESOME experience."
"Awesome math is an amazing place to learn advanced mathematics, but the relationships you develop are so much more powerful than any of the math you’ll learn here. I met easily one of my best friends ever here, and although I’ve known him for a mere two weeks, I feel like I’ve known him for many years. Would recommend to any math lover!"
"AMSP is challenging, but indeed it tells us that Esse Quam Videri!"
"Not only do I feel like I’ve learnt more than ever, but also I take home unforgettable experiences and really valuable memories. AwesomeMath was so fun."
"AwesomeMath is much more than a math camp. The friends I’ve made will last for a lifetime, and the instructors and TAs are all knowledgeable and excited to help you understand everything."
"AMSP helped me immensely in math."
"AwesomeMath was incredibly fun and helped me learn a lot of new mathematical ideas that would be applicable to math competitions."
"I love the moment when I can't understand a problem, but when I go to office hours, my instructor helps me understand the problem in a very elegant way."
"AMSP is generally and specifically awesome, not only about the academic skills I acquired, but also about the friends I made, the exbullient atomsphere these staff and kids cooperatively created. You will love it and wish you could come back one day, either as a staff or a student!!!"
"This will probably remain one of the highlights of my summer. I truly enjoyed and am continuing to enjoy this camp."
"10/10 had an absolute blast and learned a lot"
"I learned a lot more than I expected and now feel much better about my skill in math competitions."
"Awesome Math Summer Program is a great experience. It is a great experience for people of all ages and math levels, whether you are a middle schooler or a high schooler, and whether you are just getting your start into the math world or have already qualified for MOP. The classes are really good, taught by experienced teachers, including some that have graded USAMO tests. The activities such as poker night, Staff vs Student Sports, Karaoke, and Board Games are very enjoyable, and the Forums are diverse and interesting, and taught by some of the biggest mathematics legends in America. My AwesomeMath experience was filled with joy and happiness, and I didn't go a single day without going to bed thinking, "today was awesome!" I would definitely, definitely recommend the AwesomeMath Summer Program for anyone who is interested in math and wants to have a good time, and I am sure it will meet and exceed your expectations."
"Awesome Math has truly been a wonderful experience. I feel like I've left camp not only with knowledge in mathematics but also with a new family."
"Awesomemath was definitely the best 3 weeks I have ever had. I met so many new people and got to learn so much new math. The social experience was great and meeting people with a common interest was great."
"Awesome math camp was a life changing experience for me. I was surrounded by people leagues above me and introduced to material i had never heard of before. It was like finding a shiny pikachu except way more realistic. The only weapon I could use to defend myself was my mind and shocking good looks, but seeing as everyone else already had those in greater supply than I, I was forced to push the limits of my mathematical ability and learn all sorts of perplexing subjects. The teachers were great, and the activities were interesting and fun. My RA was also really cool."
"The AMSP experience was absolutely incredible. The content taught was very useful for competition and the teachers teach it very thoroughly. The social activities made the camp not only a math camp but a sociable camp."
"The camp was so enjoyable! The classes gave me an unimaginably huge amount of knowledge in just two weeks. Even more, it provided me a new perspective towards problem solving, which I know will benefit me so much now on!"
"AMSP was not only a great learning experience, but also a wonderful opportunity for me to make friends with so many other amazing mathematicians just like myself, which I think is just as important!"
"AMSP was a wonderful experience that helped me improve greatly in my math abilities."
"You will never regret of being here. Just come!!"
"AwesomeMath was an incredible experience I will never forget. The classes not only taught me new concepts but also allowed me to enjoy math more than I could before. The students, RAs, TAs, and instructors make AwesomeMath what it is. Camp passed by before I knew it and I don’t know anybody who doesn’t wish camp was longer. The overall experience was amazing and I would love to come back again."
"Awesomemath is sincerely awesome."
"I love this summer camp so much. During these three weeks, I picked up my passion towards maths again due to interesting topics told in class. Also, this is the first time that I study maths not for tests but because of my interest. It is the most treasure memory that I will never forgot in my life. What’s more, I met with group of very talented people here. I clearly saw the huge gap between us which motivates me to carefully think about whether I am going to take maths major in the university. I don’t mean to give up. I just realize I am not ready for maths major. This camp encourages me to make more efforts on maths. Most importantly, this camp has the greatest arts and crafts activities! I enjoyed me time so much making bracelet! Professors, TAs and RA are great. They played important roles in my happy memories."

"AwesomeMath is a veritable brain trust of our best and brightest math enthusiasts, from stoic mathletes with IMO aspirations to casual math nerds getting exposed to more unique mathematics for the first time."
"I learned a lot and had a lot of fun!"
"It didn’t hit me until I was on the shuttle from Syracuse to Cornell that I would be at math camp. Math camp. A place where I’d be crunching numbers for six hours a day and studying for tests - during the summer! That’s what I expected math camp to be, but in reality, Awesome Math couldn’t be more different from my expectations. The staff was incredibly kind, and the teachers and TAs were so invested in student learning. The program coordinators were friendly and focused on delivering a quality experience for students by providing open communication and mementos like t-shirts and yearbooks. I learned a ton from the camp! There’s such a wide variety of rec activities and opportunities to have fun and experience summer like a normal kid. There’s a wide range of people here with different opinions and personalities, and in a sea of so many faces, you’re bound to find a friend. I’ve made so many memories and friendships since that shuttle ride, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to come to Awesome Math!"
"AwesomeMath is the best experience in my life! It is the perfect place where the thirst for knowledge, collaboration and improvement bloom. New friends, new ideas, new concepts, new experiences… I suggest changing the name from AwesomeMath to AwesomeEverything!"
"AwesomeMath Summer Program is one of the best camps I've ever been to! It was very math intensive, which is a great experience when everyone there is super talented and interested in the subject. The instructors, TA's, RA's, and students were all very kind, helpful, and fun to be around. The activities are fun and positively add to the camp experience. Thank you AwesomeMath for such a great experience!"
"AMSP was truly one of the most the opening experiences I've ever experienced. While there were so ways this camp has helped us improve in math skills, there are also so many great opportunities to make long-lasting friendships and explore new activities during rec time. This was my first time coming to this camp and there is no doubt I would return."

"Great rec activities and math learning! Teachers were very helpful."
"Awesome Math is awesome!"
"AwesomeMath was probably one the most enriching experiences I've had. I have learnt so much from both my classes, and I also had a lot of fun while doing it. After coming here, I really feel like I am quite prepared for my next grade and competition math. I really had a lot of fun at learning all this new math and hope to come again next year."
"I wasn’t interested in math at first, but after attending Awesomemath, I found math is actually so fun and imaginative, that mathematical world is the only world in which facts exist and all can be perfectly proved."
"A mathematical experience isn't composed of rigid Dilemmas and obstacles formed by the most intricate problems but is simply generated through the people who occupy the student during this 2 week journey of pure learning and development. The Awesomemath camp has grasped very well its understanding of this valuable statemented and has put into into action whether that would be from Award wing instructors and IMO winning assistants or quite merely to the varied recreational activities, it is a one of a kind camping opportunity that anyone may attain, and as a younger student in this camp i feel honoured and somewhat overwhelmed by the level of attainment i have achieved and have come to the conclusion that this was structured through words , hands and advice from those around me, and indeed that's all that counts in the end."
"AMSP was a very fun and cool way to engage with others and learn math."
"It's like normal summer camp but everyone is a nerd"
"Attending AMSP is one of the most exciting experiences in the summer."
"Yes, I would return to AwesomeMath next year. It encouraged group growth and had an excellent staff. UT Dallas also provides a spacious campus and cool places to have rec activities. Overall, AwesomeMath was a pretty amazing experience."
"AwesomeMath is an amazing place to improve mathematics skills and make new friends with wonderful people."
"I really liked this camp. The instructors are experienced and excellent at their topic."
"Many fantastic things happen their. My instructor doesn’t only teach me number theory but also gives me tip on college math major. In fact I can’t help wait to take a course he has taken at his freshman year at Princeton!"
"AwesomeMath is a great camp that balances both educational learning and social integration with others. Throughout my time at AwesomeMath, I both augmented my individual mathematical skills and my social comfort with others. AM is a very comfortable place to be and is an overall great environment to participate in."
"The best experience of my life, and I haven’t even lived that long."

I also had lots of fun doing activities and meeting new people. I would definitely recommend AwesomeMath to anyone interested at getting better at math."
"It was so helpful, helped me enjoy math more, and I made lots of amazing friends."
"This camp seemed like it would be really boring when my mom first told me about it, but coming here was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. I’ve made so many friends and learned so much new stuff. When you hear “math camp,” you probably think of a huddle of acne-faced teens, sitting around a table, solving problems day and night, and living off coffee, but that is not what this is about. The classes are challenging, but not to the point that you want to give up and just leave. The friends you make here will last forever, and so will the memories."
"AwesomeMath was an amazing experience and very memorable. I learned a lot of mathematics from this camp and had a lot of fun and enjoyment. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had."
"AMSP was such an amazing experience! The classes were great and the faculty were amazing to interact with. The instructors and TAs work really hard to provide a relationship with the student and make sure that every student is comfortable with the material. It’s so amazing to be around so many extremely smart and different people from around the world!"
"I very much enjoyed my time at AMSP. I made so many new friends with the same interests as myself, and I learned so much more new math. The teachers were all very knowledgeable and willing to answer any question. I really hope that I can return to this camp next year."
"AwesomeMath was an amazing experience for me. The teachers and TAs were extremely helpful, and were always on the lookout to help their students. It amazed me how much the instructors cared about helping the students learn!"
"I absolutely loved this camp! If you don’t go you are missing out on the opportunity of a lifetime!"
"I really enjoyed this camp! It had everything that makes life worth living. The instructors were top notch: They made the learning experience fun and fulfilling. The RAs give you a sense of home and family so you feel the most comfortable. The other students were probably the best part of camp! You learn about different ideas and cultures, and make friends and form a strong bond because of your shared love for Math."
"I thought that I was really good at math before coming to AwesomeMath. Then I met a lot of brilliant teachers, campers and counselors who all showed me that I was wrong. However, that’s not all bad. I know that when I’m in school, it’s easy not to push myself to the max but to settle for below my potential. However, these three weeks have given me a whole new outlook on what it means to be successful, to work hard, and to do your best. Thank you AwesomeMath!"
"I had a wonderful time at AwesomeMath. I met a lot of very interesting people from all over the world, and had the opportunity to take classes with excellent teachers. I made new friends, who all share the same enthusiasm for mathematics, and learning from each other made my interest for mathematics grow even more. The whole experience of being at AwesomeMath was very rewarding, there’s just no better way to spend you summer than being at AwesomeMath. I’m going to miss everyone."
"At first it was a mingle of emotions, stuck between math and harder math. But this encouraged us to help each other out, from math to anything else, and amidst laughing and learning was created a thick web of interconnectedness. And it just kept getting better and better!"
"I really learned lots of things from AMSP this year. I look at math now in a different way. I got to make friendships with people from all over the world. The staff here was very friendly and helpful and they worked hard just to make this program work, so thank you AMSP staff. I’ll miss the amazing three weeks I had here."
"At AMSP we learned to see mathematics in a different light. While we discovered many new strategies of thinking in problem solving, maybe the most important experiences we gained were not only facing a new style of learning but interacting with others from different cultures. It makes me so happy to call so many of those interesting and new people my friends. AwesomeMath was a great experience. The staff was terrific, I made so many good friends, and I hope to keep in touch with you all!"
"This prestigious program has proven to be extremely worthwhile and rewarding. More than the mathematics I have learned at camp, I am happy to have met so many new friends and feel that I have been placed on a path to success."
"My summer at AwesomeMath has been a great one, between, well…math, and the friends that I have made. Learning new math is always interesting, and being able to discover the beauty of math that lays beneath the surface of what is taught at school is exciting for me. Finding the patterns that make up the world of numbers is such a great feeling. While I came here for the math, what really made the three weeks such a great experience were the people around me – the ones I talked with, ate with, studied with, played with, laughed with, and even literally carried: my friends, both campers and counselors. To meet so many people with so many hometowns and cultures and languages, yet still in so many ways so similar to me was amazing."
"I really enjoyed the experience at camp and all the fun times I had! I had so many times where I could laugh with my friends. I got to meet so many new people here! Also, I learned so much from the awesome teachers here who taught me so much about math. I really enjoyed the time I spent at AwesomeMath!"
"AMSP was very inspiring to me. I learned and encountered challenges I would never have faced otherwise; I learned math and much more. The three weeks I shared with the other students was perhaps the best of my life, and I will never forget all I have experienced at AMSP."
"This has been a very Awesome experience. Great teachers, EXTREMELY talented students, I’d like to thank the people who helped me get to where I am today."
"When I first came to AwesomeMath I felt like that camp was designed to be a quick fix. It wasn’t a quick fix in that my AIME score jumped 5 points in just 6 weeks that first summer; instead, it was a quick fix in that it had exposed me to who the real successful people are in mathematics and that is you, the campers as a whole, the people who do math because they love it. These people are who really made my AwesomeMath experience incredible, mathematically speaking. They helped me realize the enjoyment that can come for problem solving. And for that I am forever grateful. When I first came to the camp, I was looking to be a better problem solver, but I was motivated to do so for the sake of victory in contests rather than the personal satisfaction of solving a hard problem. These people have really shown me what that is.
Now in camp, I have had a group of peers every year that have made my experience fun. More than just the problems you get at the end of camp, the social network that you obtain, people who are determined to succeed, people who will succeed will impact your life forever. That’s the great thing about AwesomeMath, there are so many people who have different interests and enjoy different things but all share one common love, that being a thirst for knowledge and a determination to succeed."
"AMSP was fun and I learned a lot. It’s a really good summer program that has many options for students of any level."
"The challenging courses and simply being around people who love math as much as I do made AMSP one of the most memorable experiences of my life."
"It was in Grade 8, year 2013, when I first acquired Dr. Andreescu’s book Mathematical Olympiad Treasures. The copious number of gems presented in the material ignited in me an appetite for Mathematics and creative thinking, opening for me a world of boundless intellectual challenges provided by the various Mathematical Contests and Olympiads. During my training for the Olympiads, the Regional and National Mathematics Contests in India and then the Team selection test for the prestigious International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), the major resource that I used for guiding me were the books written by Dr. Andreescu and the books offered by the AwesomeMath community. The innumerable theoretical concepts, examples, problems with corresponding solutions, explicit illustrations and the motivation which the authors have striven to pass to the reader were so well conveyed that anyone who has a passion and love for Mathematics and Mathematical thinking would definitely say, “Awesome”.
Later, I came across the heart of the AwesomeMath community: The AwesomeMath Year-Round Program, which is a truly enlightening experience. The segments are very well designed and the material encapsulates fascinating and charming pearls and rubies of Elementary Mathematics. Each segment has assigned to it a unique flavour, illustrating not only Mathematical ideas but also dealing with the author’s query about “Why things should be true?” The ideas are conveyed in a very lucid and elaborate manner with emphasis on converting useful insights and intuitions into rigorously packed airtight proofs. The ideas are very simple and to the more experienced reader might even look ‘standard’ but they are applied in such witty ways that one is often stunned with the realization that such ingenuity is even possible. Each author, with his own style of problem-solving, influences the reader to think creatively. The examples lay the table for the main course: the problems. Each problem is a brainteaser and savouring and reflecting on the solution makes one enjoy it even more. The most important feature is the invaluable art of proof-writing that is very important in math contests, research, and in almost every aspect of life. The true beauty of pre-university level mathematics is captured in a single problem, making any Mathematics lover feel contented. Another enchanting experience that the AwesomeMath community provides is the Online Math Journal – Mathematical Reflections, exposing the readers to problems, solutions and knowledge of Mathematics at varying levels of difficulty. The community also has a bookstore providing innumerable books varying from the ones designed for pre-Olympiad students to the notoriously challenging book “Problems from the book”.
The Program has helped me a lot by providing lots of interesting and fun-to- solve problems and I would like to thank the AwesomeMath for spreading the joy of mathematics to the community. It is indeed an experience worth a try and the monetary cost of this program is negligibly small when compared to what one receives. In one word, it is “Awesome”."
