Go to University of Toronto Mathematics Network Home Page

It is designed to encourage high school students
to *actively participate in doing mathematics*,
providing cooperative, competitive, interesting,
and interactive projects, as well as
more traditional problems and other quality resource material.

The Network is also intended to promote communication and mathematical discussion between high schools (in both curricular and extra-curricular settings) and the university, and to establish a connection from the high-school mathematical experience to mathematics at the university level and beyond.

Through this Network we aim to provide

**Opportunities for students to actively participate in doing mathematics**:- a variety of events to which students can come,
- interactive projects and activities, featuring mathematical challenges as well as interdisciplinary topics that integrate mathematics into other areas;
- problems that stimulate mathematical thinking and growth: some traditional, others interactive (in which students with internet access can explore the features of a problem in whatever manner they choose, encouraging intentional learning); puzzles and other forms of recreational mathematics to inspire student interest;

**Mathematical resources**:- answers and explanations of questions that often arise as one begins to think about mathematics at a more advanced level, along with expositions of a variety of topics; resource material for classroom or individual use;

**A forum for communication**:- opportunities for questions and discussions about mathematics at the high school level, university level, and beyond, and the use of mathematics in other fields;
- personal contact between university and students through a variety of events and activities, such as the annual Mathematical Sciences day and the in-depth SOAR summer camp begun last year;

**A link from the high-school mathematical experience to mathematics at the university level and beyond**:- student involvement in more advanced mathematical projects such as the SOAR summer camp;
- presentations of current mathematical research activities and descriptions of the use of mathematics in various fields of study here at the University.
