2022 H-E-B Tournament of Champions supports Mathworks Summer Programs
October 26, 2021
The H-E-B Tournament of Champions has awarded a $16,000 grant to support the 2022 Mathworks half-day and residential Junior Summer Math Camps. This grant will provide scholarships to students with financial need, helping to ensure that all students can attend the Mathworks camps regardless of their financial background.
The half-day Junior Summer Math Camp (JSMC) is a two-week multi-level program for local students in grades 3-8. Students develop in-depth mathematical skills in an interactive environment, providing a foundation for algebra and higher-level problem-solving. The JSMC also provides opportunities for Teacher Professional Development for undergraduates, graduate students, and teachers allowing Mathworks to improve the learning environment beyond camp.
The residential Junior Summer Math Camp is a two-week residential camp for advanced middle school students from throughout Texas and other states. Students work on higher-level mathematics in a fun and collaborative environment. They develop innovative ways to solve challenging problems by attending daily classes in mathematical problem-solving taught by university professors, working in study group sessions led by math camp alumni, and participating in an assortment of free time activities that enhance the camp experience.
