Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics
The Hampshire College Summer Studies is looking for
interested and interesting high school students who
are likely to enjoy, to contribute to, and to profit
from 6 weeks of active engagement with the processes
Since 1971, talented high school students, guided
by teams of college teachers, graduate students, and
undergraduate math majors, have investigated challenging
problems in number theory, combinatorics, graph theory,
n-dimensional geometry, dynamics, fractals, chaos, mathematical
origami and much more. Students seek patterns, formulate
conjectures and definitions, and create proofs. Our
small classes and workshops meet for 4 hours each morning
and in informal collaborative evening problem seminars.
The entire faculty live on campus and join students
for meals and recreational activities.
