Summer Camp: Math and Art
This camp focuses primarily on the beauty of mathematics. Students will create artwork using mathematical ideas such as perspective drawings, proportion and tessellations. They will explore the golden ratio, and will investigate why some shapes tile a plane and why some do not (angle properties).
Summer Camp: Math and Nature
This workshop will focus both on utility and beauty of mathematics. Students will investigate the Fibonacci numbers and other growth patterns in their many guises as they appear in nature. Activities will involve computing the heights of trees and other tall objects, widths of fields, rivers, or lakes as well as the circumference of the Earth (preliminaries of trigonometry, using scale drawings and graph paper).
