At SummerMath you won't just
sit in class listening to lectures, and you won't spend hours struggling
with math problems by yourself. In each class you will work in
pairs, and use your hands, your eyes, your imagination, and each
other to discover how math is applies to everyday life. Your instructors
and classmates will listen to you and take you seriously. When
you have questions, they will work with you to understand. It is
a work in which creativity and problem-solving replace lectures
and formulas. A typical
