|For high schoolers, the OSU Department of Mathematics offers an intensive summer experience designed to encourage motivated pre-college students to explore mathematics. Over the course of eight weeks, students are immersed in a world of mathematical discovery. The central goal of the Ross Program has always been to instruct bright young students in the art of mathematical thinking and to inspire them to discover for themselves that abstract ideas are valuable and important. The Ross Program for high school teachers is a three week summer session involving the exploration of mathematical ideas through inquiry-based learning. Teacher-participants experience mathematics using methods consistent with the NCTM Principles and Standards. This program not only allows teachers to increase their content knowledge, but also allows them a rare opportunity to work through mathematical concepts using problems-based methods that promote learning and understanding.
