A rigorous math program for motivated high schoolers, PROMYS exposes students to an assortment of difficult problems in number theory. The day begins with a morning lecture in number theory, with experienced students also attending seminars on other advanced topics. Pupils spend the rest of the day working on problem sets; some work in groups, others alone. Boys and girls are advised by resident college-age counselors who are working toward math careers. As an additional resource, senior mathematicians hold problem sessions thrice weekly for groups of 11 or 12 students.
