This edition of Numberphiles is a week-long math day summer camp for middle school children who identify as a girl, as non-binary, or gender-fluid. This camp provides a stimulating and supportive environment for young people to develop their mathematical ability and interest. Participants solve exciting mathematics problems, interact with peers who share an interest in mathematics, and work with college students who are earning their degrees from Illinois State University. Participants will see the creative, discovery-driven side of mathematics. By showing them some of the ways mathematicians approach problems, this camp hopes to encourage students to continue studying math beyond the middle school level.
