Raleigh Math Camp will not be offering sessions for summer 2013.
Raleigh Math Camp is a week-long summer math day camp in Raleigh, NC, and is intended for rising 8th-10th graders who would like to strengthen their problem-solving skills in anticipation of their math classes for the upcoming school year.
For summer 2012 there will be two Raleigh Math Camp sessions:
Session 1: July 9, 2012 – July 13, 2012(no longer available)
- Session 2: July 23, 2012 – July 27, 2012
The total cost for Raleigh Math Camp is $249. You may pay the full amount when registering, or you may pay a $50 deposit and pay the balance on the first day of camp.
In addition to strengthening their math and problem-solving skills, students will also learn specific techniques for how to be successful in any high school math course. Students will learn how to communicate effectively with their teacher in order to demonstrate exactly how well they understand the material, and also how to pinpoint topics they don’t understand so they can immediately identify and address any areas of confusion.
As a participant in Raleigh Math Camp, you will learn:
- How to solve “word problems” even when you don’t know where to start
- How to create your very own Math Videos
- How to use “The Question Ladder” to ask questions effectively (and learn to answer many of your questions yourself)
- How to work with a study partner
- When you should (and shouldn’t) use a calculator
- How to use your computer to help you learn math
In addition, all Raleigh Math Camp participants will receive:
- A brief write-up from the instructor with an evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses as observed during the camp.
- Free lifetime email support from the instructor. Students (and parents!) can email Mr. B any time with questions about math problems, school math courses, or anything else math-related. It’s the next best thing to having a private tutor.
Raleigh Math Camp is run by Lance Bledsoe, a high school math teacher at Garner Magnet High School in Wake County. Mr. Bledsoe has been teaching and tutoring math students of all ages for many years and is intimately familiar with the most common weaknesses of high school math students and how to eliminate them.
