Summer camp lets students explore the ‘power and beauty’ of math (Jun 30)
The University of Ottawa recently hosted a mathematics camp from June 25 to 30 in partnership with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Almost 50 grade ten students in Ontario and Québec who were interested in mathematics attended the residential camp. "The camp is an opportunity to give the students a flavour of the power and beauty of mathematics,” said camp co-organizer and University of Ottawa mathematics professor Joseph Khoury. The bilingual camp gives participants an opportunity to play mathematical games, make new friends and hone their mathematics skills. Every summer the CMS stages almost 30 camps for over 1,000 students, in partnership with Canadian universities across the country. Students who attend the camps leave with new friends, new ideas and a new outlook on mathematics. More
