Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our students. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we can no longer hold our in-person residential program for 2020 as originally planned. Instead, in order to do our part as we all navigate this crisis together, the Prove it! team will be offering a free online program this summer.
All spots are currently filled and we are no longer accepting additional applications. You can find information about additional summer math programs at the AMS website.
Any student who meets all of the eligibility requirements listed below may apply to Prove it! Math Academy.
Grade: You must have completed the eighth grade or equivalent to apply for the 2020 Prove it! Math Academy. In other words, if you are either graduating from high school in 2020, or will be entering grade 9, 10, 11, or 12 for the 2020-2021 academic year (or equivalent for home-schooled or international students) then you can apply. We will not admit seventh graders who will be entering eighth grade in the fall after the program.
Age: Applicants must be at least 14 years old and less than 19 years old on the day the program begins.
Country: Applicants must be currently attending high school in the US or Canada in order to apply.
Enthusiasm: Any student who applies to our program should be ready and excited to Prove it!
The students who will get the most out of Prove it! Math Academy are talented, motivated students who like mathematics and would like to improve their skill at developing and writing proofs and solving challenging proof-based competition and research problems. More specifically, the program is particularly well-suited for students in the following situations.
If you have an interest in learning more about mathematical proof and improving your problem-solving or research skills, we encourage you to apply to Prove it! Math Academy.
To apply to Prove it! Math Academy, first work on the admissions test problems and write up your solutions, and then fill out the online application. The form includes a place to upload your solutions to the admissions test.
The application deadline is March 15, 2020. All applications received before this date will be given equal consideration. Late applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis if there are still spots available.
