Students will experience the richness of mathematics with America’s only museum dedicated to math.  Through 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 counselors at every level.  The Epsilons level for rising first through third graders focuses on helping students cultivate a love for mathematics.  The Deltas level for rising fourth through sixth graders allows campers to fully explore their mathematical interests.  And the Gammas level for rising seventh through ninth graders provides 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.

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

Transformations 2024 offers five different themes across one-week sessions (Monday through Friday), from June 24 through August 30.  The camp day starts at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm.  The fee per one-week session is $1,300.  Families may sign up for extended-day options for pickup or dismissal anytime before 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm.  Due to the popularity and small size of the program, early registration is recommended.

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 2024)

Deltas (for students entering 4th through 6th grade in fall 2024)

Gammas (for students entering 7th through 9th grade in fall 2024)

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

Registration

Each camp theme extends across a one-week session, from Monday through Friday.  The regular camp day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm, and is hosted at MoMath, located at 225 Fifth Avenue (New York City).  Each theme is specially designed for specific camp sections and may not be available to all age groups.

Note: Please register each camper separately.

Theme Descriptions

 
Transformations 2024 offers four inspiring, mathematical themes for rising 1st through 6th graders.

Adventures in Ancient Math (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Journey from the dawn of mathematical thought to the first steps into the modern world.  Follow in historic footsteps, exploring and recreating inventions and artifacts from across the globe.  Mathematics come alive while you investigate civilizations through the ages.  Ancient number systems, thrilling discoveries, and intrigue await!

Games Galore (for Epsilons only)
Let’s play with math!  Explore the ideas behind some of your favorite and classic games.  Dive into probability, geometry, and more to discover the mathematical ideas behind familiar games such as Tic-Tac-Toe and Rock, Paper, Scissors.  Develop winning strategies while learning, laughing, and playing.

Phantastic Physics (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Learn how math and science are connected, while exploring electrifying ideas in the field of physics.   Gain an understanding of the math behind how our world works.  Investigate, calculate, and fabricate!

Puzzle Master (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Exercise and entertain your brain with intriguing puzzles and paradoxes.  Have fun while learning games, mysteries, and magic tricks inspired by Martin Gardner, the creator of recreational mathematics.   Amuse, challenge, and surprise yourself as you learn to solve these perplexing puzzles.

What Are the Chances? (for Epsilons and Deltas)
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 using favorite puzzles that transcend time.

 

Transformations 2024 offers one deep-diving, mathematical theme for rising 4th through 9th graders.

Twisted Worlds (for Deltas and Gammas)
Twist and turn through topology!   Explore the mathematical mysteries of the shape of the universe.   Discover different kinds of two-dimensional shapes and play familiar games on unfamiliar surfaces.   Through hands-on projects, challenge yourself to envision various three-dimensional shapes and what these possible “mathematical universes” might be like!
