This summer HLS is offering a one-week History of Math Camp led by Dr. Charlie Suer.

Rising 7th – 9th graders will experience a unique math course, designed to explore various math concepts that are not explicitly covered in standard math curricula. These topics will be discussed from the viewpoint of where their discovery fits into World History.

Students will gain knowledge of famous mathematicians and important mathematical ideas from ancient civilization up through modern times. This includes discoveries by the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, Chinese, and Mayans, the Arabs and Italians of the Dark Ages; the French, English, Germans, and Russians of the Renaissance; and the Europeans, Americans, and Asians of more recent history. Knowledge of history is NOT required for this camp, but those who enjoy both math class and history/geography may be especially interested.
