<p>Priority is given to those who apply by March 1, though we will continue accepting applications until positions are full. You can apply <a href="https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/5956380">here </a>.</p>
<p><strong>Course descriptions</strong></p>
<p><strong><span><span><span><span>Not your childhood tic-tac-toe: Low dimensional topology and games. </span></span></span></span></strong><span><span><span>Students will explore possible shapes of a two dimensional universe, with a strong focus on the topology of the torus, sphere, and Klein bottle. We will play connect four on a cylinder, tic-tac-toe on the torus, and hide-and-seek on the non-oriented Klein bottle. Students will discover the theory of games, asking questions like “how many first moves are there in torus tic-tac-toe?” or “does the ‘it’ player have an unfair advantage in Klein bottle hide-and-seek?” </span></span></span></p>
<p><strong><span><span><span><span>Making and breaking codes: Cryptography. </span></span></span></span></strong><span><span>Students will learn how to write and read secret messages using modular arithmetic or ``clock math". We will practice sending each other messages with each method, as well as answer questions like “how can you read a message without knowing the code?” and “how can you share a code without other people being able to read the message?” </span></span></p>
<p><strong>Beyond 1,2,3: How Mathematicians Count</strong>. Students will explore how mathematicians count and compare different groups of objects. We will learn concepts such as the multiplication principle, combinations, and bijections. Students will answer questions such as “How many five digit numbers with distinct digits are there?” and “What is my chance of winning the lottery?”</p>
<p><strong>Tropical Geometry</strong>. Students will learn how to do arithmetic in the tropical math setting, that is, with the maximum and addition operations. The students will be able to determine which properties, like commutativity, associativity or existence of inverses are shared between the tropical and the classical setting. By the end of the week, students will be able to construct linear tropical curves in the plane.</p>
<p><strong>Number theory and cryptology.</strong> Number theory is a broad subject that looks at why natural numbers behave the way they do. Many ancient societies used math that is now considered number theory to find the side lengths of right triangles. Despite the seeming simplicity of the natural numbers, this is still an area of active research. SIM Camp students will look at some basic properties of prime numbers and how they can be used to encrypt messages. This is a high school version of the cryptology course.</p>
<p><strong><span><span><span><span>When a straight line curves: The geometries of space. </span></span></span></span></strong><span><span><span>Students will explore questions such as, “What happens when the angles of a triangle no longer sum to 180 degrees?” or “what does it mean to be a straight line?”. Students will imagine living in hyperbolic or spherical space, discovering for themselves the challenges presented by these unfamiliar geometries. By the end of the week, we will understand tilings and students will create their own hyperbolic and spherical art to take home. </span></span></span></p>
<p><strong><span><span><span><span>Mathematical Biology. </span></span></span></span></strong><span><span><span><span>From diseases to biological networks, we can use mathematics to create “models” to describe how systems behave over time. Mathematical Biology focuses on translating “real life” problems into mathematical structures we can analyze. Students will explore questions such as “How can you construct a model?”, “What makes a model accurate?” and “Can we apply it to different situations?” We will provide an overview of common types of models used in disciplines such as biology and social sciences. Students will learn how to represent and analyze these using equations, graphs, and computer software. </span></span></span></span></p>

<h2>For campers and parents:</h2>
<p><strong>Do I need to be on math team to enjoy SIM Camp?</strong></p>
<p>No! While some of the topics will be similar to some competition math, most of it will be different. The problems that we do in camp can be open ended, and often have more than one solution. Campers spend a lot of time working in groups, and having different perspectives helps the group solve problems better!</p>
<p><strong>Do I need to have good grades in math class to participate in SIM Camp? </strong></p>
<p>No. We are looking for students who are enthusiastic about math, and this does not always mean getting good grades. If you like making sense of ideas, looking for patterns, and figuring out why things work, SIM Camp is for you!</p>
<p><strong>Is SIM Camp a good place to get tutoring or get ahead in school over the summer?</strong></p>
<p>SIM Camp is not a tutoring program or summer school. It is an opportunity to play with fun mathematical ideas that are not usually covered in school.</p>
<p><strong>How much does SIM Camp cost?</strong></p>
<p><span><span><span>SIM Camp is $200/student, although scholarships are available. </span></span></span>. We are able to reimburse students for the cost of daily travel to camp and provide students with lunch each day.</p>
<p><strong>Does the camp provide housing?</strong></p>
<p>We do not offer any residential options. Most campers live in the Champaign-Urbana area and travel to camp from home each day. Priority is given to students who live close enough to commute. Students from further away need to arrange their own accommodations (e.g. staying with local friends or family).</p>
<p><strong>When will we hear about acceptances?</strong></p>
<p>We do not consider applications until after April 15, and we start sending decisions May 4.</p>
<p><strong>Can I apply after the deadline?</strong></p>
<p>We give priority to applications received before the deadline, but will continue to accept applications until camp is full.</p>
<p><strong>What if a student has allergies?</strong></p>
<p>The student registration form asks for any dietary restrictions or allergies. We try to accommodate any restrictions.</p>
<h2>General</h2>
<p><strong>When is SIM Camp?</strong></p>
<p>Staff training starts on May 20, 2019.</p>
<p>The camp for rising 8<sup>th</sup> or 9<sup>th</sup> grade students will be June 10-14. The camp for rising 9<sup>th</sup><sup> </sup>through 12<sup>th</sup> grade students will be June 17-21.</p>
<p><strong>Who runs SIM Camp?</strong></p>
<p>SIM Camp is run by graduates students in the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/">University of Illinois Department of Mathematics</a>. The courses are developed and run by graduate students and undergraduate assistant instructors.</p>
<p><strong>How is SIM Camp funded?</strong></p>
<p>We are funded by grants from <a href="http://www.maa.org/programs/maa-grants/dolciani-mathematics-enrichment-grants">Mathematical Association of America</a>. We also receive support from the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/">University of Illinois Department of Mathematics</a> and the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/giving/students">Department of Mathematics Outreach</a> fund, with in-kind support from the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/research/igl">Illinois Geometry Lab</a> and the University of Illinois student chapter of the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/academics/graduate-program/women-mathematics">Association for Women in Mathematics</a>. For 2019, SIM Camp is also supported by camper tuition.</p>
<p>If you interested in supporting SIM Camp, please consider donating to the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/giving/students">Department of Mathematics Outreach</a> fund, which supports our Camp and other outreach initiatives. Your support helps our department fulfill Illinois’s land grant mission.</p>
<h2>For instructors and assistant instructors:</h2>
<p><strong>Do you provide housing?</strong></p>
<p>We do not provide housing. In the past, instructors and assistants have either already had an apartment on campus for the summer, have sub-let one, or have stayed with a friend.</p>
<p><strong>Can I take a class/have another job during this time?</strong></p>
<p>The University does not allow anyone registered for at least 3 credit hours to work more than 28 hours a week.</p>
<p>We expect assistant instructors to work 9-5 during the seven weeks of employment. For instructors, we expect you to be available 9-5 during the weeks you are planning and teaching, and for 4 hours a day during pedagogy training. </p>
<p><strong>Can international students work? What if I’m on fellowship?</strong></p>
<p>International students are welcome! We will also work with students on fellowship, but it is your responsibility to know the rules of your fellowship. For example, some fellowships might view Camp as fulfillment of a teaching or service requirement, but you would be paid by the fellowship. Others might require you defer the fellowship for the summer, and some might not allow it.</p>
<p><strong>Can I teach a course that has been previously taught?</strong></p>
<p>We want campers to be able to come back year after year. Let us know if you want to learn more about teaching previous courses. You can find a list of previous courses in the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/research/illinois-geometry-lab/summer-illinois-mathematics-camp/previous-sim-camps">previous summers</a> page.</p>

<p>Summer Illinois Math (SIM) Camp is a week-long math day camp for middle and high school students hosted by the <a href="https://math.illinois.edu/"> University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Department of Mathematics</a>. Campers will see the creative, discovery driven side of mathematics. By showing them some of the ways mathematicians approach problems, SIM Camp hopes to encourage them to continue studying math beyond the high school level.</p>
<p>We will return to a two camp schedule for 2019 SIM Camp. In the past, our funding sources, particularly the Department's Mathways Grant, has allowed us to keep camp free for all campers. However, with Mathways expiring we will no longer able to run SIM camp for free. We are currently anticipating that we would have to charge participants around $200 in tuition in order to run the camp as before. </p>
