Fordham University Math Program for Talented Youth (FUMPTY) is offering a 5-week math enrichment program for middle school students. The program will expose students to different kinds of math skills than those they encounter in middle school, as well strengthen their current analytic and problem solving skills. It should be an enjoyable and inspiring experience and it could be of benefit to students interested in participating in the AMC 10 at the end of February. The topics include: clock arithmetic, ways of counting, geometry, probability, graphs, logic, and others.
The program starts on Saturday, January 26th.
An orientation is planned for Thursday, January 24th at 6:30 pm in JMH 406, Fordham University, Rose Hill Campus. The evening will begin with informal conversations with the instructor, Dr. Breeding, followed by a presentation at 7:00 pm. Refreshments will be provided.
