The programme is aimed at students of the upper secondary school who are interested in mathematics, math teachers and traineeship students and takes place annually at the Voeren Youth Hostel in Belgium. Participants are divided into groups of six students and two teachers. The School Psychology Service of the City of Aachen is also on site, which supervises the groups if necessary.
At the same time, the participating teachers will be offered a teacher training course in the field of "Mathematical Modelling with Students", which will be certified by the Teacher Training Centre of RWTH Aachen University.
From now on, interested teachers, trainees and students are cordially invited to participate with pupils. For this purpose, the teacher must send the completed pupil application forms by e-mail by April 8th, 2019 at the latest. At least three students will be selected for each participating teacher. Please understand that only timely entries can be considered. A cancellation or confirmation will be made in writing by mid-April 2019 in consultation with the teachers.
With the commitment to CAMMP week, a fee of 70.00 Euro for teachers and 50.00 Euro for pupils will be charged. This covers part of the costs for accommodation and full board at the youth hostel. The remaining costs are borne by the organisation and sponsors. Students are accommodated in dormitories, teachers in double rooms.
After the CAMMP week, there is the possibility of pursuing suitable questions for participation in competitions, e. g. Youth Research, with the support of the CAMMP team.
