Summer math camp – success continues

2018-10-10

In August, the department organized the fifth round of the Summer Math Camp. The camp is aimed at students who want to try mathematical research. In this year's edition, under the theme finite fields and their applications, four students participated: Mikolaj Cuszynski-Kruk, Sara Freyland, Johannes Granér and Einar Waara. We've asked the students about their thoughts on the camp.

- I thought that this year's theme seemed interesting. I'd always thought that there was something beautiful about discrete mathematics and wanted to learn more.

                                  - It was incredibly fun and educational!

-  In the courses, the tasks are usually designed to be solved and for students to learn something specific from them. Here, instead, it was our curiosity that was steering.

            - Collaboration is a greater part of research than I thought.
