Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning NEWCANCELLED

Grades 9-12
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) is a summer course for those interested in pursuing future study in mathematics, data science, computer science or statistics and are curious about technology. Artificial intelligence is a broad field of computer science focused on creating intelligent systems capable of performing tasks that would typically require human intelligence. Machine learning is defined as the specialized branch of AI that aims to use mathematical models that learn from data.  This class will familiarize students with a broad cross section of applications, models and algorithms for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The course will involve computer programming in Python. Prerequisites: Algebra II. Students should have a strong foundation in mathematics including working knowledge of matrices, functions, descriptive statistics and mathematical modeling. Prior experience with programming and computer science are nice-to-haves but not required. Also listed under Upper School Technology

Introduction to Statistics and Probability NEWCANCELLED

Grades 10-12
Unlock the power of data and probability in this intensive three-week summer course designed for high school students. Statistics and Probability offers an engaging and hands-on approach to understanding key concepts in statistics and probability theory. Throughout the course, students will delve into the world of data analysis, learning how to collect, organize, and interpret data to make informed decisions. The curriculum covers fundamental statistical concepts such as measures of central tendency, variability, and correlation. Students will also explore probability theory, including basic probability rules, conditional probability, and probability distributions. The course integrates practical applications of statistics and probability in various real-world scenarios, emphasizing their relevance in fields such as finance, science, and social sciences. Students will engage in interactive activities, case studies, and projects that encourage critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Prerequisites: Algebra 1. Students should have a strong foundation in mathematics and be curious about data. Note: If your student has access to a Ti-84 graphing calculator or higher model, that'd be a plus.
