Summer Opportunities

As a rule, PAUSD Summer School is only for credit recovery, not for advancement (taking GEO A for rising 10th graders is the one exception).  So we’d recommend enriching your students mathematical background by studying problem solving, contest math, or some other topic not offered at Gunn.

The Art of Problem Solving offers many on-line courses.  We’d recommend a selection from their “Contest Math” Series, “intermediate math” series or computer science. While your student won’t receive PAUSD credit for these courses it will help them improve their skills as a problem solver.

AMC advantage is an on-line course developed to help students with problem solving and contest math.

Paly often offers a summer problem solving class. Please see the course offerings on the PAUSD Summer School website. 

The American Mathematical Society has a page with great resources for summer enrichment opportunities:
