for those who like mathematics

MathLink is a Math enrichment program at Carleton University, which started in 2006. MathLink will give an opportunity for the high school students to explore mathematics beyond the school program. The target age group is grades 9 and 10, but anyone with interest in mathematics may participate. We will explore various topics in mathematics including:

  • Sequences
  • Combinatorics
  • Probability
  • Geometry
  • Logic
  • Mathematical games

    Each session will begin with a lecture, followed by a problem-solving session. The problems we consider will be on the topic of the lecture. Once in a while, there will be special lectures given by professors at Carleton's School of Mathematics and Statistics. We will also be working on olympiad-style problems (at appropriate level).

    Why should you participate?
    This program is oriented towards the students who already do well in high school math. Its goal is to ensure that these students succeed and excel in mathematics courses at the University level. If you plan to enter a University to study mathematics, science or engineering, MathLink will be beneficial for you. And finally, we do math because we like it!

    We meet weekly on Wednesdays at Carleton University, Herzberg Laboratories building, room 4351, 6:00 - 7:30 pm.


    MathLink is free, and there is no formal registration.

    Support with the Endowment Grant from the Canadian Mathematical Society is gratefully acknowledged.
