SMA 2021 Summer Camp

About 2021 Summer Camp

Special Maths Academy (SMA) welcomes you to the Summer Camp where cool kids from all over the country gather to share their passion for mathematics. The students will get to rub minds, work on problem sets, and network with the most brilliant minds from all over Nigeria and abroad during the camp. The students representing Nigeria at International Mathematics Olympiad and Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad will be attending the summer camp. Your wards will get the opportunity to interact with them through our classrooms and online seminars organized during the camp.

This camp is designed to teach olympiad-level mathematics as well as instill other important skill sets that determine the success of a student; these includes but not limited to positive mindset, study strategy/tools, perseverance. We do this in order to maximize the learning outcome of our students. The participants leave our camps more inspired than they came in and we mentor them to take the strategies learned during the program and apply in other areas of their lives. Thus, creating a champion mindset out of each student.

Our mission at SMAL is to build a sustainable ecosystem for the most talented Nigerian mathematicians; to mentor and nurture them from an early stage and become ready to participate in IMO/PAMO by the time they get to JSS3. Our aim is to build an army of IMO level problem solvers that can consistently obtain GOLD and SILVER medals thereby creating difficulty in selecting Nigerian teams for the various international competitions.

Who is this for?

This camp is specifically designed for high-performing junior secondary school students who are passionate about building their mathematical foundation to be able to participate and ace the Nigerian mathematics olympiad. 

Our philosophy is that students will develop stronger problem solving abilities through intuitive understanding of theorems and concepts as opposed to memorizing formulas to solve problems through repeated drills. Thus, our trainings are structured to reflect this philosophy
