Extreme Math Camp 2014 PDF Print E-mail

There is a new math camp starting in Saskatoon.

Extreme Math Camp 2014 will be held on Thursday and Friday, June 26 and June 27 at Walter Murray Collegiate in Saskatoon.  The camp is designed to mathematically challenge able students in grades 7 to 10 who have an interest in mathematical problem solving.  We will have presenters from the University of Waterloo, University of Saskatchewan and elsewhere leading four sessions each day with students split into a junior group (typically grades 7 and 8) and a senior group (typically grades 9 and 10).

The fee for the camp is $50 for students from outside of Saskatoon.  This covers tuition for the two days, snacks, a t-shirt, and prizes.  We are able to keep the fee this low due to the generous support of the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers' Society and the University of Waterloo.   Last year we had 40 students attend the first Extreme Math Camp and the participants were very enthusiastic about their experience.

I am hoping that you could pass this information on to students that you think might benefit from the math camp.  The camp is strictly a day camp, so no meals or accommodation is provided.

Mathematics Enrichment Camp 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 13 May 2014 09:50

For over a decade now, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Regina has held a mathematics enrichment camp for students in Saskatchewan.  This one-day camp is for students in grades 7 through 12 who are interested in exploring the infinite frontier of mathematics beyond the school curriculum. The main goals of the day are for the students to have fun, interact with each other, meet faculty and University of Regina students, all while participating in a wide variety of mathematics related activities.

We have seen students who have attended these camps in the past going through the University, some pursuing a degree in Mathematics. At present, two of our top students pursuing an honors degree in Mathematics attended previous Math camps organized by the department, and were volunteering in the math camp last year. One of these two competed against other top mathematics students in the country and won a prestigious scholarship to study Mathematics in Moscow for a semester.

This year the 2014 Mathematics Enrichment Camp will be held on Saturday, October 4th from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm at the University of Regina. The cost of the camp is $25 per student and includes lunch, snacks and prizes for all attendees. Registration and additional information including photos from last year are online through our website: http://www.uregina.ca/science/mathstat/community-outreach/mathcamp/index.html

This camp is sponsored by the Canadian Mathematical Society.
