The focus of PCMI is a three-week Summer Session. At the annual Summer Session all six of PCMI’s groups

high school teachers
mathematics education researchers
undergraduate college faculty
undergraduate students
graduate students
mathematics researchers

meet simultaneously, pursuing both individual courses of study and a meaningful amount of interaction. The rich mathematical experience combined with interaction among all participants results in greatly increased understanding and awareness of the issues confronting mathematics and mathematics education today.

The Summer Session will be held in Park City, Utah, from July 8–28 2001. Park City is a scenic resort town approximately 30 minutes from Salt Lake City. Long known as a popular ski resort in the winter, Park City’s summer attractions include a pleasant climate, breathtaking mountain scenery, and abundant hiking and outdoor opportunities. 

PCMI is a program of the INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY, Princeton, New Jersey.
