Greetings, fellow Coders! Here is something for the young coders out there.
A bunch of undergraduate and graduate students from MIT, IISc etc. are conducting this online math camp called the Monsoon Math Camp, so I thought some of you may be interested in this. The idea is to introduce some bright high-schoolers to advanced mathematical ideas, through a series of interactive classes. Best part, participation is completely free of cost!
They are going to cover some really cool things like Category Theory, Curvature in Geometry, Topology and Combinatorics, Markov Chains and Random Walks, Algorithmic Game Theory, Machine Learning. If these sound scary and unfamiliar, that’s probably a good thing; it means you’ll get something new out of this camp! Do note that no prerequisites are required for the most part. Only few courses would be requiring knowledge of High School Linear Algebra (i.e, just basic Matrices stuff) and High School Calculus, the rest would be completely accessible to all.
Head over to monsoonmath.org for more information and for applying. Last date for applying is April 5, 11:59 pm (Indian Standard Time). A few friends of mine are involved in conducting this, and I assure you this is probably among the most fun things you can do in the next few weeks from home and for free.
