What should my child bring with them to Math Camp?
1. A 3-ring loose-leaf binder (used is fine) with plenty of notebook paper.
2. A calculator (a TI83 or TI84 graphing calculator is recommended, but not required).
3. A pencil.
4. A bag lunch and a snack. (A refrigerator and microwave are available for student use.)
How many students will there be at Math Camp?
All Raleigh Math Camp sessions are limited to a maximum of 15 students per session.
Does my child have to be “good at math” to benefit from Math Camp?
Not at all. Raleigh Math Camp is for any student who wants to improve their math skills and be a better math student. We happily welcome those with math phobia, math anxiety, and others who don’t consider themselves “good at math.”
How do I pay the balance of my camp fee?
You can write a check or you can pay via PayPal. If using PayPal, just go to the Registrations and Payments page, select the appropriate “Balance” option, and click “Pay Now.” You can also pay the balance on the first day of camp when you drop your child off; just bring a check or cash.
What are the dates and times for Raleigh Math Camp?
Session 1 is from July 9 to July 13, Session 2 is from July 23 to July 27. Both sessions run from 9am to 3pm each day. Students can be dropped off as early as 8:30am, and should be picked up at 3pm each afternoon.
Do both sessions cover the same material?
In general, yes, both sessions of Raleigh Math Camp cover the same material, so choose the one that best fits into your summer schedule.
Is this an overnight/sleepover kind of camp?
No, Raleigh Math Camp is a day camp only. All participants must be picked up each day at 3pm.
If my plans change, can I get a refund?
All deposits and fees are fully refundable until one week before camp begins. If you need to cancel after that time, you will forfeit your $50 deposit, but any other amount paid will be refunded.
Do participants really get lifetime email support from the instructor?
Absolutely. Any time students (or their parents) have a math-related question, they can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll respond. Many students have anxiety about math because they feel like they don’t have any resources to get help when they’re confused about something. At Raleigh Math Camp, my students learn that they have lots of resources for help, and this is one of them.
