BOZEMAN — Montana middle and high school students passionate about advanced math are invited to attend the Mathematics Circle Summer Camp set for June 17-20 and hosted by the Science Math Resource Center at Montana State University. Participants will immerse themselves in math problem-solving activities, tour innovative university labs and engage in fun science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, activities.

The camp is for students entering sixth through ninth grades and will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day on the MSU campus. The four-day camp is offered as a day camp, with housing options available for out-of-town participants.

Tuition is $220, which includes lunch and snacks each day. Sponsorships from the MSU College of Education, Health, and Human Development, the MSU Center for Faculty Excellence and the Mathematical Association of America help keep tuition costs low, according to Jill Joyce with the Science Math Resource Center.

Camp participants will also receive information about enrollment and test readiness for the American Mathematics Competitions, the national math exams conducted by the Mathematical Association of America. Results from these exams are often requested from universities like MIT, Stanford and Caltech, Joyce said. These online exams are hosted each year for Montana students by the MSU Science Math Resource Center.
