These one-week activity-filled half-day math camps for students entering 2nd-grade through 6th-grade in the fall of 2018 will engage students in fun, hands-on mathematics investigations and games with connections to science, technology, engineering, and the visual arts. Students will leave the camps more energized and enthusiastic about mathematics and the other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines.Â
These ten-day math programs are designed forÂ students entering 7th-grade math,Â 8th-grade math, Algebra I, or Geometry in the fall of 2018.Â Through the lens of computational thinking, students will explore mathematics using technology to develop inductive and visual reasoning. Hands-on activities integrating mathematics and computer science will provide an innovative approach to learning mathematics.
This twelve-day math programÂ is designed for for students who have completed precalculus. At the end of this program, students will be better equipped for the rigor of college-level mathematics and for success on A.P. Calculus and I.B. Mathematics exams. Proof, justification, and authentic problems will be explored using a varietyÂ of methodsÂ including graphing technology and other computing tools.
The response to our June enrichment programs for rising 8th-, 9th-, and 10th-graders who will be taking Algebra I or Geometry in the fall of 2018 was huge, and parentsÂ urged us to offer a new section to accommodate the students on the waiting list and other students who might also want to attend.
This new section will take place for nine days â€“ July 9-12 and July 16-20, (9 â€“11:30 am). During the first eight days, students will meet in the Rice University School Mathematics Projectâ€™s classroom at 5615 Kirby Drive (Suite 300) and on the last day, they will meet on the Rice campus for a mathematics tour of the Rice University campus.
Through the lens of computational thinking, students in this 9-day program will explore mathematics using technology to develop inductive and visual reasoning. Hands-on activities integrating mathematics and computer science will provide an innovative approach to learning mathematics. Upon completion, students will be well equipped for success in their next mathematics course and beyond.
Rice Prep: A Summer STEM Camp for 8 - 11 Grade Students (at Harmony Science Academy- Austin)
The Rice University School Mathematics Project offered an exciting enrichment STEM camp for Austin area students currently in grades 8 â€“ 11, June 4 â€“ 8, 2018 (8 a.m. â€“ 1 p.m.) at the Harmony Science Academy.Â
This camp is ideal for students who would like to explore STEM research in one of the following areas:
(1.) Biology and Biomedical Engineering
(2.) Civil and Environmental Engineering
(3.) Computer Science
Students refined and deepened their understanding of important STEM concepts by working on research projects of their own design under the direction of award-winning Rice faculty and staff from the Rice University School Mathematics Project and will receive personalized feedback of their research. Students left well prepared to present their research at national and international science fairs.
