The 2017 Prove it! Math Academy has come to a close. Many thanks to the Prove it! Math students and instructors for making our third year’s program a fantastic and memorable experience!
Prove it! Math Academy will be held at University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado’s front range, Boulder is a safe, naturally beautiful, and culturally vibrant college town.
The unique location allows us to balance work and play at Prove it! Math Academy. The daytime classes will be held in CU Boulder’s well-equipped classrooms and computer labs. In the evenings students will have free time to work on problems with their fellow students, use the campus recreational facilities, or join one of the downtown outings led by the program counselors. We will also take advantage of the close proximity to the Rocky Mountains on our field trip to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Participants will be staying in the Williams Village North Hall. There will be two students to a room, so each student will have one roommate. The rooms are air-conditioned and each have two twin beds, two desks, a mini-fridge, and a window with blinds.
Students are expected to reside in the dormitories, as we believe that part of the experience of Prove it! Math Academy is the opportunity to interact with like-minded students both inside and outside of the classroom. However, if there are special circumstances that would make it necessary for a student to provide their own accommodations, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will be provided a meal card that gives them access to the brand new dining hall in Williams Village North for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day between July 17 and July 28 inclusive. Additionally, dinner will be provided for all students on the arrival day (July 16) and breakfast will be provided for all students on the departure day (July 29).
In addition to housing and meals, students will be provided with access to the Student Recreation Center, which they can take advantage of in the evenings or in free time between sessions. The Rec Center features climbing walls, swimming pools, cardio and weight machines,1 and more.
The dormitories have study lounges that students can use in the evening to work on math problems, play card games, etc. with their fellow students. Free Internet access is available on the CU Boulder campus.
1. Note that students are not allowed to use the free weights due to age restrictions at the rec center, and any students wishing to use the cardio or pin weight machines must be supervised by a program counselor.
