The four-day camp offers students currently in grades 8 – 10 the chance to develop math, stats and data skills through sports-related contexts.
Campers will engage in experimental data collection (free-throw shooting), problem-solving (when a football coach should go for two?) and working on open-ended projects (such as creating a predictive model for March Madness).
The camp is scheduled for July 16 – 19, 2019 and runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day and cost is $180. Transportation is available from Des Moines for $20 for the 4 days.
The camp is coordinated by Professor of Mathematics and Assistant Women’s Soccer Coach Russ Goodman and Greg Kapusinski ‘07, a math teacher and assistant girls track and field coach at Southeast Polk High School.
Early Bird Registration: $160.00 through April 30
