Canadian Mathematical Society(CMS) and Carleton University Summer Math Camp

The Canadian Mathematical Society has been offering engaging camps all across Canada for decades. The goal of the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) is to promote and advance the discovery, learning and application of mathematics.

We wish to create an environment for children to develop a passion for mathematics through exciting mathematical challenges with positive role models while building new friendships. This camp curriculum was exclusively created by the Canadian Mathematical Society, and local teachers. This camp is open for anyone who wishes to attend!

We are currently full for all camps, but you can join our waitlist here. Just click ‘Register for Summer Camp’ add your email and click ‘join our waiting list’.

There will be 3 groups available:

Math for the fun of it  (SOLD OUT)
Ideal for ages: 6 – 11

This class is for students who are looking to explore math concepts and strengthen their skills through games and hands-on activities. If you are looking to have fun with math and learn at the same time, this is the class for you! 

Details: In this class, students will become confident in their current understanding of math concepts through manipulatives, games, puzzles and creativity. Students will engage with their peers in a fun and collaborative way to practice math concepts. 

Math for the next level (SOLD OUT)
Ideal for ages: 10 and up

This class is for students who are mastering their current math skills and looking to jump ahead to the next level. If you are interested in refining your understanding of math and ready to learn the concepts coming up in the next school year, this is the class for you!

Details: In this class, students will learn the applications of their current understanding through collaborative problem solving. From here, they will engage in discovery activities, puzzles and math competitions to explore new concepts.

Shooting for the stars (SOLD OUT)
Ideal for ages: 12 and up

This class is for students who are ready to learn advanced concepts that connect their current understanding in new and challenging ways. If you are looking for a challenge, this is the class for you!

Details: In this class, students will work towards concepts that are much beyond their grade level. They will do this through challenging, collaborative problem solving that requires a deeper level of understanding and connection between concepts. Students will engage in math competitions and puzzles to advance their understanding.

***The overall concepts covered in each class will be: number sense, algebra, data management, geometry and measurement.

***No student is stuck in one class. The purpose of these classes is to have fluidity depending on the concepts covered and the student’s strengths.
