IAS/PCMI Summer Session 2004

Dates: July  11-July 31, 2004

Location: Prospector Square Lodging and Conference Center,
Park City, Utah

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

High School Teacher Program (and Mathematics Supervisors)
Mathematics Education Researcher's Program
Undergraduate Faculty Program
Undergraduate Student Program
Graduate Summer Session
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 11-July 31, 2004. 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, with offices in New Jersey and in Utah.
