Mathematics Programs

Program Overview

Eureka Alumni from this program have received admission offers to Princeton University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), Cornell University, and many other top US universities. Alumni from this program have gone off to pursue majors in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Data Science, Law, and Engineering. 


The research experience, training, and skills students receive at the Eureka Mathematics Program have helped students to compete in prestigious math competitions and exams, such as the Regeneron Science Talent Search, Yale Physics Olympiad, American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), American Invitational Mathematics Examinations (AIME), International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and many other programs.

Published papers on basketball have used game theory to study various in-game situations. Chow et al. analyzed end-of-game situations where the offensive coach instructs a player to shoot a two- or three-pointer, while the defensive coach sets up their defense to counter either shot. The study found that certain shooting and defending strategies are optimal based on the point differential and the frequency of the shooter attempting a three-pointer. The study did not identify a pure strategy Nash equilibrium.

Community Activities


The Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (MOSP) is a highly selective program in the United States for high school students who excel at mathematics and have participated in prestigious mathematics competitions such as the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) or the USA Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAJMO). The MOSP is a three- to four-week residential program held at Carnegie Mellon University, where students receive intensive training and problem-solving sessions in mathematics from top mathematicians and educators. The program is designed to help students prepare for international math competitions such as the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), as well as develop their problem-solving skills and mathematical abilities. Students who attend the MOSP are among the top math students in the country and often go on to have successful careers in mathematics, science, engineering, and other fields.


The MIT Research Science Institute (RSI) is a summer program that offers high school students the opportunity to conduct advanced scientific research in a university setting. The program is hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and is highly competitive, admitting only about 80 students each year out of thousands of applicants from around the world. RSI students work closely with MIT faculty and graduate students on cutting-edge research projects in fields such as mathematics, physics, biology, computer science, and engineering. In addition to conducting research, RSI students attend seminars, workshops, and social events designed to enhance their scientific knowledge and foster a community of scholars.

The Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC) is a three-week summer program for high school students interested in mathematics, held annually on the Stanford University campus in California. The program is designed to provide a challenging and engaging environment for mathematically talented students to explore advanced mathematical topics, learn problem-solving techniques, and participate in collaborative projects. Participants attend daily lectures and seminars, work on problem sets, and have opportunities to attend guest lectures and social events. Admission is competitive and based on academic performance and mathematical ability.

Honors and Awards


Eureka Alumni that studied in the Eureka Mathematics Program, who was recently admitted into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). One of her research projects finished as a finalist at the ISEF. The Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) Awards are prizes given out at the annual ISEF competition to exceptional high school students who have conducted original research projects in various fields of science and engineering. The awards are sponsored by the pharmaceutical company Regeneron and are considered among the most prestigious honors for young researchers. Regeneron ISEF Awards include cash prizes, scholarships, internships, and other opportunities to further students' education and research. The Regeneron ISEF Awards are presented to students who demonstrate exceptional scientific talent and creativity, and whose research has the potential to make a significant contribution to their field.


Eureka Mathematics Program Alumni who is currently studying at Columbia University had finished as a finalist at the MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge. The MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge is an annual online competition for high school students in the United States. Participants work in teams of up to four students to solve a real-world mathematical modeling problem over the course of four days. The competition is designed to encourage students to apply their mathematical knowledge to real-world situations and to develop their problem-solving and teamwork skills.
