The Williams College Math Camp (WCMC) is a residential math camp for about 20 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.
There will be a 2017 camp in July. We are still waiting for funding decisions. We hope to have application materials and dates posted by very early March. The application deadline will be in early April.
WCMC is funded by the American Mathematical Society, Carlow & Zepka Construction, Williams College, and private donations.
