Summer Math Camp

BOONE–Word problems, algebraic formulas and polygons. Just the thought of geometry and algebra problems can create shudders of anxiety.

But professors in Appalachian State University’s mathematical sciences department know how to make math fun.

Math Camp, now in its fourth year, will be offered for rising seventh-12th graders. Basic Algebra Camp will run July 23-26. A geometry and algebra II camp will be offered July 30-Aug. 2

Cost is $85 per student and includes 12 hours of instruction, limited accident insurance, snacks and a camp T-shirt. The deadline for registration and payment is July 15. Space is limited to 90 students per session.

Sessions will be held in Walker Hall. Call (282) 262-2368 or (828) 264-0181 for more information.

In a team atmosphere, students learn how to study math and think in math class. They also will review fundamentals and learn new concepts.

The camp is taught by Appalachian math professor Anita Narvarte Kitchens, author of “Defeating Math Anxiety,” Marty Campbell, also from Appalachian’s math department, and Dr. Jeannie Hollar from Lenoir-Rhyne College.

The camp is sponsored by Appalachian’s Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Math and Science Education Center.
