Do you want to explore and create mathematics? Then read on, for that's what MathILy is all about! In MathILy classes, instructors provide the framework and you get to make (and prove!) the conjectures. You will encounter new ideas, improve your problem-solving skills, learn lots and lots of advanced mathematics, and hone your overall thinking skills. You'll meet others like you. (Yes, really. We promise.) Most of all, you will find serious mathematics infused with levity.
MathILy is five weeks of maximized mathematical marvelousness.
Even if you're a master of mathematics, there is more to learn. And if
you're not a master, we'll help you become one.
Just want to have fun with math many hours each day? We can handle that with you, too.
MathILy is designed for students with an insatiable curiosity about mathematics, and who are creative and enthusiastic in their approaches to learning. Participants come from all over the United States and, sometimes, the world.
Many summer mathematics experiences are organized on the principle that simply combining smart people with mathematics will result in learning and fun. This is a true principle---but why not do better? MathILy promises a focused and individually tailored effort that elicits massive learning, enormous fun, and significant personal growth.
Note about SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19: In 2023 MathILy will take place in person and with full vaccination required. If a change in pandemic conditions makes this impossible, then the programs will move online with synchronous classes.
