Math Camps have begun and registration is now closed. 

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 investigate why some shapes tile a plane and why some do not (angle properties). They will learn about geometric construction, graph theory and platonic solids. Through game, they will investigate the “Four Colour Theorem”, a surprising result in mathematics that states that any map can be coloured using only 4 colours so that no two countries sharing a borderline will have to be coloured using the same colour. They will simulate the Seven Bridges of Konigsberg problem and construct their own hexaflexagons.

Math with Art camp is from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, and Math with Nature camp is from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. For students who register for both morning and afternoon sessions, the 1 hour lunch period is supervised and includes math games. Students must bring their own lunch. Students who enroll in both morning and afternoon sessions get a discount on the second session.
