What's Included

Do you love numbers, statistics, sports and card games? The first part of this camp will explore how to measure performance of baseball players. Students will learn about Bill James and the search for objective knowledge of baseball through studies in “Sabremetrics.” During the second half of camp we will play and analyze the game of Bridge. According to Bill Gates, “Bridge helps you think. It’s a game you can play your entire life and keep getting better and better.” To continue math fun all summer long, students will be introduced to the ALEKS program, a web based artificially intelligent learning system. The course fee includes a three-month ALEKS subscription. Join Blake Lower School Administrator and former Whitby School Math Coordinator Peter Zantop for a fun, enriching and challenging week of mathematics studies.
