The Summer Algebra Institute for Kids (SAI) will be held at MSUM. SAI is an enrichment program that uses algebra to unify and connect mathematics for children. SAI shows young students how algebra illustrates several “grand ideas” that unify and connect math across grades and across topics.

Algebra is the gateway to every higher math class. SAI has shown for almost 20 years that kids as young as 3rd grade can learn substantive algebra.

Students entering 5th or 6th grade will meet 9 a.m. to noon, and students entering 3rd or 4th grade will meet 1 to 4 p.m. The program runs July 23-27 and will take place in Hagen Hall. To register, download a form at
