Register for Transformations 2021

Students will experience the richness of mathematics with America’s only museum dedicated to math.  Through online interactive education sessions, creative projects, and supervised independent activities, math will come alive for each and every participant.

The Museum offers a mixed-ages camp with attentive camp counselors at every level.  The Epsilons level for rising first through third graders focuses on instilling a love for mathematics.  The Deltas level for rising fourth through sixth graders allows campers to fully explore their mathematical interests.  The Gammas level for rising seventh through ninth graders will provide a deep dive into advanced mathematical knowledge and skills.

MoMath’s talented staff will keep campers engaged and entertained with grade-appropriate activities, and the program’s curriculum will feature interactive learning in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Transformations 2021 offers five different themes across one-week sessions, from June 28 through September 3, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm ET (New York), with extended-day options until 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm ET (New York).  Themes include “Fibonacci and Beyond!,” “Mathemagical Marvels,” “Puzzle Me This,” “What Are the Chances?,” and “Infinities of Infinities.”  The fee per one-week online session is $650.  Due to the popularity and small size of the program, early registration is recommended.

Additionally, camp families in the NYC area are invited to add some in-person mathematical fun, MoMath style!  Each Tuesday of their camp week, campers and their entire family may join MoMath educators and camp staff for unique outdoor activities from 4:00 pm to 5:15 pm in the neighborhood surrounding the Museum.  This special $99 upgrade is available only to camp families.

Themes and Registration

Whether your child is already passionate about mathematics or just starting to explore its wonders, Transformations will expose your child to cool areas of mathematics not covered in school and stoke the flames for a lifelong appreciation of mathematics.

Note: Please register each child separately.

Weekly Sessions

Camp sessions start on June 28, 2021, and run weekly through September 3, 2021, Mondays through Fridays.  Camp starts daily at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm ET (New York).  Extended day options are available until 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm ET (New York).

Camp Themes

Transformations 2021 offers four inspiring mathematical themes for rising 1st through 6th graders.

Fibonacci and Beyond!  1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13.  In this sequence, each number is the sum of the two before it, and they form one of the most famous sequences in all of mathematics.  Come investigate the Fibonacci sequence and other iconic mathematical progressions, learn these number patterns, and discover the mathematical wonders they reveal.

Mathemagical Marvels.   Did you know that mathematics lies behind countless magic tricks?  Discover the illuminating math underlying magic and develop problem-solving skills to uncover magic’s mathematical mysteries.  Become a mathemagician, perform your prestidigitation, and astound your family and friends!

Puzzle Me This.  Exercise and entertain your brain with intriguing puzzles, games, paradoxes, and other mathematical recreations.  Have fun and expand your knowledge while developing strategies and exploring such areas of mathematics as graph theory, geometry, and logic.  Amuse, challenge, and surprise yourself as you learn to solve these perplexing puzzles.

What Are the Chances?  When something unexpected happens, is it just luck?  Sometimes events that seem random are in fact more likely than we might have thought.  From simple games to important decisions, a better understanding of chance helps us make wise choices.  Learn about probability — it is full of surprises.  Come try your luck!

 
Transformations 2021 offers one deep-diving mathematical theme for rising 4th through 9th graders.
Infinities of Infinities.  Can you flip a coin “infinity” times?  How can pi have “infinity” digits?  Is infinity even a number?  One of the most mystical concepts in all of mathematics, infinity stretches the rules and leads to fascinating paradoxes.  Explore the infinite while discovering the wonders of numbers so large you can’t even imagine them.

Camper Sections

Campers will be divided into three sections for age- and grade-appropriate instruction:

Epsilons (for students entering 1st through 3rd grade in fall 2021)

Deltas (for students entering 4th through 6th grade in fall 2021)

Gammas (for students entering 7th through 9th grade in fall 2021)

Attentive camp counselors ensure fun while learning.  Our small section sizes encourage individualized instruction and allow opportunities for campers to explore and gain a deeper understanding of mathematics.

Registration Fees

Registration fees for online camp are $650 per one-week session, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm ET (New York).  Extended day options are available at $150 per week for a 4:00 pm ET (New York) wrap-up, and $300 per week for a 5:00 pm ET (New York) wrap-up.
