Mathematics Camp (for High Schoolers)
Do you often wonder if the algebra, calculus, and statistics classes you are taking will ever apply to real life? This camp will put those mathematical concepts to use to solve real-life problems. Mathematic camp participants should have a solid mathematical background in algebra and the first course of calculus. Participants will be placed in small groups and will advance their knowledge in logic, algebra, calculus, calculus of complex functions, linear algebra and probability. Our goal is to solve real-life problems with the use of abstract mathematical concepts. Students will explore problems from engineering, biology, finance, game theory, cryptography and more. During the camp, students will also use mathematical software such as Maple, Matlab and latex.
Dates: June 29 and July 1, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17
Instructors: Dr. Olivier Heubo-Kwegna, Associate Professor of Mathematics; Dr. Emmanuel Kengni Ncheuguim, Assistant Professor of Mathematical Science
