#### MathLink Program – Grade 9-10* Students (Free Program)

*Refers to the level of mathematics and not to the actual age.

MathLink is a free Math enrichment program at Carleton University, which started in 2006. MathLink will give an opportunity for the high school students to explore mathematics beyond the school program. The target age group is grades 9 and 10, but anyone with interest in mathematics is invited to participate. We will explore various topics in mathematics including:

- Sequences
- Combinatorics
- Probability
- Geometry
- Algebra and Applications
- Logic
- Mathematical games

Each session will begin with a lecture, followed by a problem-solving session. The problems we consider will be on the topic of the lecture. Once in a while, there will be special lectures given by professors at Carleton’s School of Mathematics and Statistics. We will also be working on olympiad-style problems (at appropriate level). MathLink is designed in a way that students may take it for two years in a row. The curriculum will not repeat. In alternate years we put emphasis on either Algebra or Geometry.

#### Why should you participate?

This program is oriented towards the students who already do well in high school math. Its goal is to ensure that these students succeed and excel in mathematics courses at the University level. If you plan to enter a University to study mathematics, science or engineering, MathLink will be beneficial for you. And finally, **we do math because we like it**!

**2020/21 Course Information**

Carleton University will be operating online at least until December 2020. We will not be able to offer this course until University is open for regular classes.
