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 June 30-July 20, 2002. 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.
