The Williams College Math Camp (WCMC) is a free, one-week residential math camp for 18 mathematically gifted high school students who have completed or are currently enrolled in Algebra 2 or its equivalent. Students will be exposed to several different areas of mathematics through colloquia and other activities, but the primary focus of the camp will be Number Theory & The Art of Mathematical Thinking. Students will learn to explore the theory of numbers by asking thoughtful questions, working out examples, looking for patterns, making conjectures, and finally, proving their results.
The 2014 Camp will take place from July 7 – July 11, 2014. Participants will be provided with free room and board, but are responsible for their own transportation to and from Williams College. The deadline for applications is April 4, 2014.
WCMC is funded by the Dolciani Foundation, through the Mathematical Association of America, and Williams College.
