Foundations in Science and Mathematics
Summer Program for High School Students
This two week summer program is designed to help local students prepare
for upcoming high school science and mathematics courses. It will emphasize
important introductory concepts and tools in order to provide a strong
foundation for later learning. All students are welcome to attend, but keep in
mind that these courses are designed for students who will attend high school
in the fall.
We are back and expanding again for the summer of 2013! This year will feature the addition of computer science courses. These courses are designed to build a firm foundation in the principles of computer science that will be necessary for most college programs. Additionally, the computer science courses are designed to enhance the other math and science courses we offer! To top it all off, we are offering computer science courses for free with registration in another FSM course! That's right, if you take any FSM course, you will be automatically enrolled in the computer science course of your choosing for no additional charge! Of course, if you prefer not to take computer science, you don't have to, but we strongly encourage all students to take a computer science course in addition to any other course.
Registration is now open for the 2013 summer program. Check out the registration tab above to find out how to sign up! If you would like to be added to or removed from the fsm e-mail list, you can contact us at fsm indiana.edu. We will occasionally e-mail you with updates on the program.
Here are some things that students have said about FSM:
"I liked the fact that we can get a head start... because of this course, I think I'll feel more prepared and confident when the school actually starts."
"I liked the format of the classes and the personal attention I received as well as how in-depth the explanation was for each topic. I also enjoyed the friendliness of the instructor and the comfort of the classroom."
"I loved all the labs and hands on experiences we did. It really helped me understand why something worked."
"Our instructor was knowledegable and very helpful. He was friendly, and I was able to learn a lot from him. The class itself taught me some things that I did not know, and helped me refresh my memory of the things that I had forgotten."
