This summer, the economics department will once again be offering its popular online math and stat camp courses to the general public. Both camps will begin on May 25th, 2020.
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 other universities) 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 provides an extensive overview of real analysis, linear algebra, calculus, optimization, and difference and differential equations. The stat camp covers probability theory, random variables, and large sample theory. Both camps will last for eight weeks.
