Summer Math and Stat Camps
This summer, the economics department will once again be offering its popular online math and stat camp courses to the general public. This is the fifth time that the online math camp will be offered, and the fourth time that the online stat camp will be offered. The math camp will begin on May 14th, 2018 and the stat camp will begin on May 28th, 2018.
 
Students who enroll in the math and/or stat camp will take the class alongside our newest cohort of Rice graduate students. These courses are designed to provide individuals preparing to apply to PhD programs (both at Rice and others) with an opportunity to bolster their applications and demonstrate their commitment and ability to participate in rigorous PhD-level coursework and research.
 
The math camp will last for eight weeks and provides an extensive overview of real analysis, linear algebra, calculus, optimization, and difference and differential equations. The stat camp will last for seven weeks and covers probability theory, random variables, and large sample theory.
 
The registration links for these camps are provided below:
