## Ross Mathematics Program

The Ross Program is an intensive summer experience designed to encourage motivated pre-college students to explore mathematics. During those six weeks, students are immersed in a world of mathematical discovery. The central goal of the Ross Program has always been to instruct bright young students in the art of mathematical thinking and to inspire them to discover for themselves that abstract ideas are valuable and important. First year participants take the basic course in number theory. For more information, and to apply, see the Ross Mathematics Program website.

## SAMMS (Sampling Advanced Mathematics for Minority Students)

SAMMS is a summer school for undergraduate students, primarily from traditionally underrepresented minorities, who are considering advanced studies in mathematics beyond the baccalaureate degree and are curious to test the waters of graduate mathematics. SAMMS is organized by The Ohio State University and the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, and takes place at the Ohio State mathematics department. The program consists of a four week mini-course curriculum with additional graduate school preparation activities. For more information, and to apply, see SAMMS.

## Beyond the Classroom: Girls Exploring Math

Beyond the Classroom: Girls Exploring Math is a non-residential summer program sponsored by the OSU Department of Mathematics and The STEAM Factory – to be held at The STEAM Factory. This program invites 20-25 young women entering the 10th, 11th or 12th grade to experience mathematics through engaging activities in an untraditional environment.
