- Online Mathematics Lessons from India
Lots of interesting lessons on a wide range of mathematical topics by Sanjeev Singh.
A three-week intensive summer program for mathematically gifted students across the nation. This program offers mathematically gifted students the opportunity to engage in meaningful problem solving activities and explore in detail areas in advanced mathematics. The high quality instruction is provided by renowned lecturers and Math Olympiad coaches.
- Summer Science Program (SSP)
An exhilarating six-week experience in which small teams of high school students apply physics, calculus, and programming to determine the orbit of an asteroid from their own observations. One of the oldest (since 1959) and most prestigious pre-college research programs, SSP is held on campuses in Socorro, New Mexico, and Ojai, California. Current juniors and sophomores are eligible to apply; deadlines are February 25th (first round) and March 25th (final). Bright teenagers from around the world come to SSP to spend their days in college-level lectures, and their nights doing hands-on astronomical research (to be later archived at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics). Guest lectures from prominent scientists (many of whom are themselves alumni), and field trips to places like the Very Large Array of radio telescopes and NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab round out the curriculum. Students describe SSP as an intense, stimulating intellectual and social environment, "the educational experience of a lifetime." Emphasis is on teamwork and cooperation; neither grades nor formal credit are given. Enrollment is limited to 36 per campus, and seven faculty members live on-site with the students.
Students, parents, and teachers are encouraged to visit www.summerscience.org for more information and an online application. SSP is managed and largely funded by its own alumni, and established in cooperation with California Institute of Technology, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Harvey Mudd College, New Mexico Tech, Pomona College, Stanford University, and UCLA. Additional support is provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
