Description

Beyond the Classroom (BtC) is a summer program sponsored by the OSU Department of Mathematics. This program invites middle and high school students to explore mathematics through engaging activities in an untraditional environment. Led by a staff of enthusiastic math professionals, participants build confidence in their math and programming abilities and develop a deeper understanding of a variety of topics, including mathematical and algorithmic reasoning and problem-solving skills.

BtC provides a supportive atmosphere that allows experimentations and computations outside of the standard secondary curriculum. The goal of this program is to create a deeper appreciation of mathematics.
