               http://math.bu.edu/people/promys/

  PROMYS encourages ambitious high school students to explore
  the creative world of mathematics. 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.
