The Ohio State University—Ross Mathematics Program



A partnership between the university and the Clay Mathematics Institute, this intensive program enrolls precollege students who have displayed significant achievement in math. Participants explore concepts in number theory; work with mathematical ideas built from concrete observations and resulting in proofs of general patterns and abstract properties; and develop learning strategies for use in later scientific endeavors. On weekday mornings, students attend a number theory lecture and receive a problem set that leads to further exploration. Pupils also attend problem seminars given by experienced faculty members.
