Qualifying Quiz is a set of 7 challenging and inspiring problems which award creative approach and original ideas. Applicants solve them at home and send the solutions through the project's website after registering.
Applicant Questionnaire is meant to give a measure of the personal motivation of applicants, their level of mathematical maturity and potential. Moreover, the applicants describe there their background and what has led them to become passionate about mathematics, mostly in an essay called Personal Statement. Finally, they have the chance to propose the activities they would like to run in order to contribute to the camp - Camper Talks, Evening Activities or Mathematical Classes.
Semitutors are participants who run their own Mathematical Classes. Every applicant is welcome to apply as a semitutor. In order to do so, they are asked to submit their proposal of Mathematical Classes. Semitutors’ applications are considered first; if somebody does not get accepted as a semitutor, they are automatically considered as regular applicants.
