The Mathematics Department at Dartmouth College and the Center for Mathematics Education at Dartmouth are pleased to announce two summer enrichment workshops for local high school students. Here is a chance for students to interact with mathematicians in a fun, non-graded environment. Topics covered will be outside of the usual high school syllabus. An exploratory approach will be emphasized. Each program will cover different mathematical topics and students are invited to attend one or both sessions.
Summer 2019 Workshops:
Workshops meet from 1:00pm to 4:00pm in Kemeny Hall on the Dartmouth Campus. Program cost for each workshop is $20.00. Contact Lorraine Hennessy at 603-646-2415 (email: Lorraine.L.Hennessy@Dartmouth.edu) for more information.
To apply, send a completed registration form to the Math Department.
Do you like playing games of chance? Ever wonder how to improve your odds? Probability can help! In this camp, we will investigate probability in a variety of different contexts, from presidential elections to a potential zombie apocalypse.
We'll discover a world of ciphers and codes, starting with ancient Roman methods and moving toward modern cryptographic techniques. We'll send secret messages, break codes, and solve puzzles!
There are many types of symmetry in the world. But how do we analyze them? Join us as we explore symmetry mathematically and consider its consequences.
Come explore the exciting world of graph theory. We will look at some of the oldest questions posed in this field and see how they relate to everyday objects.
