Camp Themes

Transformations 2020 offers four inspiring, mathematical themes for rising 1st through 6th graders.

The Next Dimension: Picture a piece of paper: placed flat, it is a two-dimensional world, living within our three-dimensional space.  The paper can be used to cut through that space, or we can examine the shadows cast on it.  Can you imagine using our own space to explore the shadows of four dimensions?  Through hands-on activities, discover the mind-expanding concepts that mathematicians use to see spaces beyond our world.

From Caves to the Cosmos: Did you know that human mathematics dates back more than 40,000 years?  Journey from the dawn of mathematical thought to the first steps into the modern world, meeting fascinating characters along the way.  Ancient number systems, thrilling discoveries, and intrigue await!  Mathematics comes alive through the stories of mathematicians and their ideas across the ages.

Beautiful Symmetry: Art imitates life, and symmetry is fundamental to both.  Far from just mirror images, symmetry is a powerful mathematical construct that lends beauty and harmony to artistic creations.  From wallpaper to words to higher dimensions, students will explore the different types of symmetry, and create their own artistic masterpieces.  Come dive into the creative side of math!

The Math of Sports: Why are sports tournaments scheduled the way they are?  Why are basketball players interested in triangles?  How round is a soccer ball?  Why do cyclists care so much about gear ratios?  How do schedules, scores, luck, and skill determine winners?  Learn how mathematics helps us answer these and other sport-related questions.

Transformations 2020 offers one deep-diving, mathematical theme for rising 4th through 9th graders.

Crazy Cubes:  Discover the deep and engaging math behind the Rubik’s Cube, while enhancing your problem-solving skills.  Explore the complexity of the Cube!  Math meets art when you design and construct intricate patterns using Rubik’s Cubes.  Warning: its challenges and tactile nature can keep you puzzling for hours!

* Please note: due to online programming, Crazy Cubes is replacing Crazy Curvature.

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 2020)

Deltas (for students entering 4th through 6th grade in fall 2020)

Gammas (for students entering 7th through 9th grade in fall 2020)

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 are $650 per one-week session, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Extended day options are available at $150 per week for a 4:00 pm pick-up, and $300 per week for a 5:00 pm pick-up.

Camp begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm, with an extended day option until 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm.

Camp Policies

Strictly no refunds, no credits, and no transfers will be permitted.  Spots are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.  All registered campers must sign a photograph permission and release form.

Be sure to read MoMath Online Camp Policies prior to registration.

Financial Aid

Limited funding is available for students who demonstrate a strong interest in mathematics and whose families are facing financial hardship.  If the price is too steep for you, please inquire at scholarships@momath.org.
