About the Texas Tech Summer Math Academy
The Texas Tech Summer Math Academy (SuMAc) is a local hands-on, intensive, mathematics academy offered to students wanting to further their knowledge and understanding of mathematics and research. SuMAc is a commuter program; therefore, students will be engaged in research activities from 8AM - 5PM for the first week of the academy. During the second week of the academy, students will be working in small groups to complete a project. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the math building daily. At SuMAc, students have the opportunity to collaborate with Texas Tech mathematics faculty and staff through an exploration-based project. During the program, students are exposed to many different concepts using mathematics and math based programs to solve problems.
In order to receive the most benefit from SuMAc, each student is required to have a certain basic knowledge of mathematics. Therefore, we require that each student has received, at the time of the camp, an 'A' or 'B' in High School Algebra I and Geometry. Students will be recruited through local high school math teachers. These teachers will recommend students who will be a good fit for the program. If you feel your local math teacher would be a good fit for the program, please contact us.
