2015 Math Camp Details

Students are eligible for the 2015 Math Camp if they are in 5th or 6th grade during the 2014-2015 school year. Our students typically come from Rio Rancho, but any student living in New Mexico may attend.

Dates for the 2015 Camp are: June 1-5 and June 8-12 (Mondays through Fridays) -- 10:00 am to Noon. Both weeks are included.

We are looking for students **currently in 5th or 6th** grade who enjoy math and want to be challenged with creative, hands-on lessons. For examples of the topics we cover each summer, click here.

Tuition Free: Thanks to generous donations from local businesses, Rio Rancho Math Camp is free.

Camp attendance is limited to 16 students. Demand for admission exceeds the available capacity, so please ensure that your child really wants to attend and will attend all ten sessions.

Admission Criteria: We serve students who love math, and want to learn more. We do not screen for math ability, but we do ask that every student have memorized the times tables prior to attending. Admission is on a first come, first served basis. Click here to request an application form for the 2015 Math Camp.

Sponsorship and Location: Rio Rancho Math Camp is sponsored by The ASK Academy Foundation, a 501-C3 organization, and sessions will be held at The ASK Academy at 4311 Sara Road, in Rio Rancho. The ASK Academy is a public charter STEM school (grades 7 to 11) specializing in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

To receive an application form, please email Andy.Klee@YoungMathWizards.com.

We aim to inspire an appreciation for math that will last a lifetime!

We cover many interesting topics, with hands on activities, and we strive for mastering the underlying concepts, not rote memorization. To see the full list of camp lessons click here.

Some of the student faves have been:

- Seeing how a Klein Bottle is actually an unfolded Mobius Strip.
- The amazing connections between Pascal's Triangle, the Fibonacci Sequence, and the Golden Rectangle.
- How dropping a needle on a lined piece of paper eventually gives you the value of Pi.
- Proving the Pythagorean Theorem in a way that is memorable.

Who we are

Rio Rancho Math Camp was founded, on a volunteer basis, by Andy Klee, a Rio Rancho resident.

For more on Andy's background and why he started Rio Rancho Math Camp, click here. We are fortunate to have two additional volunteer teachers, both of whom are returning for their third summer of Math Camp.

We are currently seeking another adult volunteer to assist with teaching the sessions. A background in teaching Math would be very helpful.
