Boston College Math Experience

Program Description

This engaging and creative program is designed to challenge high school students with a strong interest in and talent for mathematics.

Students in this program will participate in math courses that are focused on topics outside of what is typically covered in a high school setting but does not require a background in Calculus. Under the guidance and instruction of faculty from the Mathematics Department and supported by graduate students in the field, students will have the opportunity to learn and explore a variety of problem solving skills. Their classroom experience will be supplemented with a Math workshop with an emphasis on collaborative problem solving. Students will also have access to supported evening study sessions.

Candidates should be able to complete pre-calculus level work and the teacher recommendation from a Math department teacher at your school should mention if you have any experience with writing proofs.  Students without experience in writing proofs are still eligible for the program.

Once admitted into the program, students are required to take two courses:
