Macaulay Honors College Presents
The Summer Scholars Academy in
Mathematics and Science at CCNY
| ||The Macaulay Honors College Summer Scholars Academy in Mathematics and Science is a six-week CUNY College Now summer program that provides highly motivated high school students an opportunity to enroll in challenging college mathematics or science courses through two distinct academies, one for mathematics and the other for science. This summer's program will take place from July 6th through August 12th, Mondays through Thursdays from 9AM to 4PM at the City College of New York on 138th Street and Convent Avenue. |
The Academy in Mathematics is structured to take advantage of the abilities of students who have progressed rapidly through the high school mathematics curricula. There will be an "Olympian" cohort that will be engaged on the same level as that of the American Math Competition and will be expected to have the skills required for local Math Team participation. Students in this cohort will need to have demonstrated strong math abilities and preference will be given to those who have completed their high school math courses with distinction. A "Junior Olympian" cohort will participate in similar activities as the "Olympian" cohort and will also receive introductory training in Math Olympics. Students in this cohort will need to have completed a High School Mathematics Course and it's Regents Exam with distinction.
Math Academy students will enroll in two college math courses (college credit may be awarded for successful completion of the program) and will also attend a series of "Prime Time Lectures", a daily hour-long lecture by guest scientists and mathematicians. In addition to the lecture series, groups of students will be organized into teams to participate in weekly mock math team competitions. All students will enroll in Basic Ideas in Mathematics. The "Olympian" cohort will then take Bridge to Advanced Mathematics. The "Junior Olympian" cohort will enroll in College Algebra and Trigonometry. The daily schedule will also include a supervised homework and lab period
In the Mathematics program, courses will include (tentatively, based upon registration):
Students interested in the Bioinformatics track must have demonstrated strong math skills and students in the Chemistry/Physics track must have a good understanding of science and shown a keen interest in studying advanced scientific theories.
Science Academy students will enroll in two college science courses (college credit may be awarded for successful completion of the program) which were designed to engage students in the practical applications of mathematics and art in the field of science. Students enrolled in these courses will also attend the daily "Prime Time Lecture" series and participate in the weekly mock math team competitions.
In the Bioinformatics program, courses will include:
Students MUST commit to attending the program all day, every day for the duration of the program.
Non-medically excused absences may result in the denial of college credit.
