IMA Special Workshop
IMA-MathCEP Math Modeling Camp for High School Students
July 21-25, 2014

Jonathan RognessUniversity of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Fadil SantosaUniversity of Minnesota, Twin Cities

How is math used to solve important problems facing our world today? Mathematical models help us to study the effects of traffic on a bridge, predict trends in population and disease, or estimate the climate’s impact on natural resources.


This week-long summer camp will offer high-school students the chance to use their mathematical skills to analyze real-world situations.  Under the supervision of teachers and University faculty, participants will work collaboratively on open-ended modeling problems, develop practical solutions, and present their results to their peers.  Successful participants may be sponsored by the university for international modeling contests in the 2014-2015 academic year.


Students should currently be enrolled in high school and have completed a year-long course in single variable calculus by the end of the 2013-2014 school year.


Applications are due March 31, 2014. Students selected to participate in the program will be notified by April 15, 2014. Please note that there is no cost associated with the IMA-Math Center for Educational Programs (MathCEP) camp.
