Hi all! Thanks to everyone for another great summer of Math Contest mini-camps!
It was one of my favorite ever! Thanks to Christy and Kevin for teaching again. And thanks to the kids for their boundless perseverance and enthusiasm.
Good luck to all this year, in math class and math competitions! We’re entering the first “season” of math contests now, with the UNC High School Math Contest in late-October, followed by the AMC8 in mid-November, and then the Rich Morrow Math Challenge (for elementary) in early-December.
There’s lots and lots and LOTS of practice and information on this website:
Then there’s AoPS and AGMath and so many other great websites out there! But you’re always welcome to contact me with questions (though I don’t often check my camp email this time of year…..)
But good luck to all, and thanks again!!!!!
Thanks for your patience, everyone. The locations for the summer camps are set!
June 25th – June 29th (Elementary and “Intro” Groups): The Eloise May Library (1471 S Parker Rd, Denver, CO 80231)
July 9th – July13th (“Intro” and Advanced Groups): The Smoky Hill United Methodist Church (19491 E Smoky Hill Rd, Centennial, CO 80015)
I’m disappointed that I couldn’t get the Smoky Hill Library for either session, but those rooms are really in high demand. BUT….I’ve used the Eloise May Library before, and Smoky Hill UMC will work out great, I think! (very close to the library)
There are a few spots left still, though we have good-sized groups already for all four groups. So….I’m so excited to get started! Keep checking email for more info.
~ ~ ~ Woo hoo! Summer 2018 is almost here ! ! ! ~ ~ ~
Registration is now open for this summer’s ColoradoMathCamp sessions! It will be similar to the last few years: we’ll have three groups (Elementary, Middle, and “Advanced” Middle/High School). Go to the Summer 2018 page for more info on each of those groups.
Before you register, as usual, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make sure I still have room, then go ahead and click here to register.
If you’re not ready to register, but would like to get on my mailing list, enter your info below:

I scheduled a few more dates (for all ages) this Spring. Click here for more info.
And……the summer “Math Contest Mini-Camps” for 2018 will be:
June 25th – 29th (Elementary and Middle School)
July 9th – 13th (Middle School and Advanced Middle School/High School)
Then, if there’s enough interest, I’ll do another mini-camp the week of July 2nd.
I’ll be getting all the registration forms and workshop descriptions ready this week, but you can save those summer dates!
I’m having such a ball doing these workshops (with all ages, K-12), and I’m excited to keep them going!
~ ~ ~ Hi all ~ ~ ~
Another “math contest season” is upon us!
I *finally* have a bit of time (done with my Masters Degree at last, woo hoo!), and I’m excited to be able to offer some contest workshops in the next few months!
Depending on what age you are, you may be participating in some of these upcoming competitions:
- The Final Round of the UNC High School Math Contest, up in Greeley (Jan 20th)
- The MathCounts Chapter Round (early Feb) and State Round (mid March)
- The AMC10A (Feb 7th) and 10B (Feb 15th)
- The Colorado Math League (Feb 20th)
- The Purple Comet (April 10th – 19th)
Click on the Winter/Spring Workshops tab to see the upcoming workshops (in January – April) in which we’ll prepare for these contests….and just do some awesomely hard problems! If you’re NOT going to take these contests, but would like to attend the workshops anyway, I’d love to have you!
A quick note: I just happened to check the recent AMC8 scores, and 5 of the 11 students on the “Distinguished Honor Roll” have attended my camps. Also, in the recent MathCounts Chapter Round (Metro), quite a few of the top kids were “Colorado Math Campers.” Congrats to them!!
