DescriptionThe Summer Math and Problem Solving Academy, known as Math Camp is provided by Plainsboro Department of Recreation and Community Service and Plainsboro Academic Camps, LLC and is an excellent opportunity for upper elementary and middle school students (rising grades 5-8) to practice and advance their math skills and also learn ways to apply these concepts in various types of problem solving. The courses may include middle and secondary topics including arithmetic, numeracy, ratios and proportions, linear equations, systems, coordinate geometry, probability, number theory etc. Half Day campers will take 2 courses (one each week).
This camp program provides students with exposure to and practice with these mathematical topics, as well as an opportunity to participate in a mock competition such as those associated with programs like MathCounts, Continental Math League, and American Mathematics Competitions.
Materials are made appropriate for multiple levels of mathematical experience and will be available for students beyond the duration of the camp. Students will be expected to participate in daily lessons and competitions, which may be enriched by additional at-home practice.
Directors are current math and science teachers and Instructors are former members of the MathCounts team from the West Windsor Plainsboro School District.
Registration for this camp will be done directly with Plainsboro Academic Camps LLC at https://sites.google.com/view/plainsboroacademiccamps.
