AGES 12–18

Boost your math skills while interacting with new friends and soaking up a summer in the Hamptons! Mathematics @Ross offers a range of mathematics courses delivered by highly trained faculty in an intimate, supportive setting. Small class sizes and tailored instruction reinforce concepts learned in prior classes and provide an edge to those looking to move ahead in math. A variety of extracurricular activities and organized outings complement this academic focus, making for an unforgettable summer experience.
COURSES
Pre-Algebra
Students explore algebraic expressions and linear equations with a thorough review of operations using integers, fractions, decimals, percentages, and radicals. Relations and functions are investigated and solved using equations, tables, and graphs. Units on statistics and geometry extend foundational concepts in preparation for higher-level math courses. Problem solving and real-life uses of math are featured throughout the course.

Elementary Algebra
Students focus on fundamentals of algebra and geometric applications. They study linear equations and inequalities, coordinate geometry, systems of equations and inequalities, polynomials, radical expressions and equations, and quadratic equations. Real-life problem solving is emphasized.

Geometry
Students explore the concepts of logic and geometry systematically, working from undefined terms, definitions, postulates, and theorems. They also address topics beyond plane geometry.

Intermediate Algebra and Trigonometry
Students develop an understanding of a toolkit of functions, examining their behaviors, characteristics, and applications. They learn to represent and interpret these functions numerically, graphically, algebraically, and verbally, with an emphasis on mathematical modeling. They also study combinatorics, matrices, and probability.

Pre-Calculus
Students explore the topics of probability and statistics, trigonometric functions and trigonometric identities, polar coordinates, sequences and series, and fractals, and are introduced to limits. The content of this course is approached with concepts, results, and problems expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Students regularly apply computer and graphing calculator technology to reinforce concepts, confirm written work, implement experimentation, and assist in interpreting results.

Introduction to Calculus
Students explore the concept of a limit and how this relates to the derivative. Through investigation of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, students then make connections of the derivative to the integral. Students approach calculus with concepts, results, and problems expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Technology is used to reinforce concepts, confirm written work, implement experimentation, and assist in interpreting results.
