For Students: Participating in CAMCOS


The CAMCOS Application Process

Updated July 2014: In the Fall 2014, we will run two CAMCOS projects: one sponsored by the NASA-Ames Research Center and supervised by Professor Bradley Jackson on efficient algorithms for finding optimal partitions of astronomical data; the other on mathematica origami, sponsored and supervised by Professor Roger Alperin. More information about the NASA project can be found here. For details about the origami project click here.

Applicants: San José State students who want to be part of a CAMCOS team can do so by taking Math 203. However, registration for Math 203 is by application only. Reviewing of applications for Fall 2014 will start on August 1 and will continue until the first day of class (August 21). To apply for Math 203:

  1. Download the application form. Students who have previously taken Math 203 and wish to continue with the same faculty supervisor need not reapply.

  2. Submit the application form to the CAMCOS director by e-mail (strongly preferred) or by campus mail.

  3. Since you are not guaranteed to get into Math 203, in the semester that you want to take Math 203, register for classes as if you were not taking Math 203, but put a class into your schedule that you can drop if you do get into Math 203.

  4. If you are chosen for a team, you will be notified directly, most likely by e-mail. Add codes will be given out by the faculty supervisor at the first or second class meeting.
