The Mathematics Enrichment Day Camp is a unique opportunity to explore the exciting world of mathematics. Explore topics in mathematics that are fun, challenging, and different from what you learn in school. A camper’s day includes educational and entertaining activities. Learn, play games, and go on field trips to adventures in the mountains surrounding Western State Colorado University.
Camp participants challenge themselves with topics such as the mathematics of card tricks, cryptography, geometry, and fractals. Campers will be introduced to a topic in a morning session and put their knowledge to use in exciting afternoon sessions. Campers work side by side with each other, mathematics professors, and college students who share an interest in mathematics.
Extra Curricular Activities
