Mathematics summer camps at Saint Xavier University provide local students the opportunity to work with university mathematics professors. Participants in our camps will explore exciting mathematical topics that are extensions of the traditional school curriculum.

This year, we are offering two camps: the Mathematics and Art Summer Camp, which is for middle school students (entering grades 6, 7 and 8); and the Secrets of Mathematics Summer Camp, which is for high school students (entering grades 9, 10, 11, and 12). Additional details about each camp are below.

Mathematics and Art Summer Camp

At the Mathematics and Art Summer Camp, students will explore the connections between mathematics and art with hands-on activities and computer software. Through investigations with symmetry, modular arithmetic tables, star polygons, origami, Mobius strips, the art of M.C. Escher, tessellations and fractals, students will create unique mathematical designs. On Friday, June 30, from 1-2 p.m., parents are invited to attend the PowerPoint art show.

Faculty Instructor: Dr. Jaclyn Murawska

The Secrets of Mathematics Summer Camp

The Secrets of Mathematics Summer Camp is a unique, five-day enrichment program that offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on the history of mathematics, 3D printing, number theory and cryptography.

Faculty Instructors: Dr. Nikki Pitcher, Dr. Kristen Schreck and Dr. Ahmad Mojiri
