Math Camp

Info & Registration / Instructors / Lectures

Math Camp is an intensive one-week introduction to fundamental concepts of mathematics and probability designed to help prepare social science graduate students for advanced courses in statistical methodology in general, and CSSS courses in particular. Math Camp does not assume prior exposure to this material, but does assume basic math skills through high school algebra. Key concepts will be presented in lecture, and students will have an opportunity to work through problem sets with the assistance of a TA. The idea of math camp is to provide students with the conceptual foundation, basic tools, and confidence necessary to successfully undertake future study of statistics in the social sciences. It will also provide lecture notes and web materials for students to refresh their memories of key concepts and tools before embarking on CSSS courses.
