From July 7 to August 17, approximately 60 high school students from around the country will gather on the campus of Boston University for six weeks of rigorous mathematical activity. Through their intensive efforts to solve an assortment of challenging problems in number theory, participants practice the art of mathematical discovery. PROMYS for Teachers supports current efforts in Massachusetts to enhance problem-solving and open-ended exploration in high school mathematics classrooms. The 2002 Student, Counselor, and Teacher applications are now available. \|/ SUMMER MATH CAMPS AND PROGRAMS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS (AMS) http://www.ams.org/employment/mathcamps.html The American Mathematical Society has a listing of titles, locations, and links of summer programs that provide high school students experience in the world of mathematics research. \|/ MATH CAMPS & SUMMER PROGRAMS http://mathforum.org/students/high/opps.html The Math Forum maintains an annotated list of math camps and summer programs. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/discussions/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
