Instructional topics include geometry/spatial skills, algebra, data analysis and probability, problem solving/reasoning and computer/calculator use.

Campers will also learn about famous female mathematicians in history and hear a guest speaker discuss the ways she uses math and/or technology on the job.

The camp is held in the College of Education, and media should report to Room 2021 for a daily schedule of events. For more information, contact Lynda R. Wiest, professor of education, 682-7868 or wiest@unr.edu or unrmathcamp@gmail.com.
