The League plans to hold the Summer Mathematics Institute June 28-July 2 in 2021 at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, MN.

The format will be either a daytime commuter program or online. No overnight option will be offered. 

The final determination of whether the specific program will be be in-person or online will depend on the state regulations in effect at that time. We plan to make a final decision on format by June 1st.

Topic for Students entering grades 7-9, fall of 2021: Knots!

You know prime numbers, but do you know prime knots? Students will explore the relatively new field of knot theory with two mathematical artists. Using algebra, diagrams, string, and other tools, we’ll explore both solved and unsolved problems in this branch of topology. A minimum of Algebra 1 and some geometry is necessary background.


Topic for Students entering grades 10-12, fall of 2021: Probability Theory in Math League and the AMC

Students will study the topic of “Probability Theory”, covering all the material necessary to solve the probability theory questions on high school contests like Math League, AMC, AIME and ARML. Students should have completed Algebra II and be motivated to learn challenging mathematics not taught in the typical school curriculum.
