SummerMath and SEARCH (Summer Explorations And Research Collaborations for High School Girls)

Whether you love math or hate it, SummerMath can help you strengthen your mathematical thinking and communications skills, develop problem solving strategies and computer skills, and build your confidence. Introduced in 1982 by Mount Holyoke College, one of the nation's finest liberal arts institutions, SummerMath is a nationally acclaimed four-week program for young women entering ninth through twelfth grades. The program has been featured on "ABC World News tonight with Peter Jennings", on the "Today Show", and in NewsWeek. We believe young women stay with mathematics longer -- and keep more options open -- when feeling confident and when seeing how math applies to the real world. Because math is in just about everything -- from digital sampling to design to DNA.

Three daily classes:
- Fundamental Mathematical Concepts
- SuperLogo
- Workshops
