Location

Prove it! Math Academy will be held at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains at the north end of Colorado’s front range, Fort Collins 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 CSU’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.

Housing

Participants will be staying in the brand-new Laurel Village Piñon Hall, in suite-style double rooms with a private bathroom. 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, and a window with curtains.

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 important for a student to provide their own accommodations, please contact us at info@proveitmath.org.

Meals

Students will be provided a meal card that gives them access to the Durrell Dining Center, in the newly renovated Durrell Hall, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day between June 25 and July 6 inclusive. Additionally, dinner will be provided for all students on the arrival day (June 24) and breakfast will be provided for all students on the departure day (July 7).

Campus Facilities

In addition to housing and meals, students will be provided with a two-week membership to the CSU Rec Center, which they can take advantage of in free time between sessions. The Rec Center features swimming pools, cardio and weight machines,1 and more.

The dormitories will 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 CSU 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.
