Cambridge Math Circle

TYPE OF CAMP: Academic Experience Camps
GRADES: 4-7
WEEKS: Week 5 (7/20/20–7/24/20)

During our summer camps students play math-related games, work on a variety of puzzles, and wrestle with Olympiad-style problems that are appropriate to their level of mathematical understanding.

Our goal is to help students use the basic tools they’ve learned in school math to answer deeper questions, and to be able to discover their own solutions to challenging problems, and above all, to enjoy doing math and have fun!

Nataliya Yufa received her bachelor’s degrees from MIT in mathematics and physics, followed by a PhD in physics from the University of Chicago. It was in Chicago that she started teaching, working with people of all ages — school children, undergraduates, and adults. She served three years as a teacher/director of STEM afterschool programs within the Chicago Public Schools, and one year in Houston. These experiences inspired Nataliya to become a full-time math educator, following work as a math education researcher. Since then, Nataliya has taught math at several Boston-area schools, including co-teaching the CSUS math club. She has an M.Ed. from Lesley University in Math Education.

What to Bring

Campers play regardless of weather, please plan accordingly. Bathing suits are recommended for all camps. Classic campers will swim and Specialty and Sports campers may have an option to do slip and slide fun during the week. We leave our bathing suits at camp all week so no need to remember to bring them back and forth each day. We provide towels here at camp so no need to bring your own! We are trying to use less plastic cups, please encourage your camper to bring a reusable water bottle. There will be water refill stations all over campus.
