Math Program for Young Minds

Program overview

CMT's Math Program for Young Minds is a 13-week long online program for mathematically talented middle school students in grades 7-8. The program provides a mathematically rich environment to middle school students interested in mathematics, and is designed to encourage them to explore mathematical topics outside the school curriculum. In this program, selected students­ are introduced to undergraduate level math topics while building problem solving skills and abstract reasoning. Students will have weekly meetings with a Courant faculty and a teaching assistant. All sessions will be hands-on, very active with lots of group work and problem solving activities. Academically strong applicants coming from underserved communities are encouraged to apply. This is a non credit college program.
