"At GIV I was constantly surrounded by opportunities to expand my knowledge and by people who were aiming to do just that. I felt a sense of community that I had never felt before, a feeling that my lifelong interest really does serve a purpose in the world. I was made quickly aware that I was not alone in my love for math.”

About the Kenneth I. Gross and Tony Trono Mathematical Sciences Institute

This Institute is named after its two visionary founders, renowned Vermont mathematicians Kenneth I. Gross and Tony Trono.

In the Mathematical Sciences Institute, theoretical and real-world applications of math will have you dazzled as you enjoy advanced lectures by renowned mathematicians and scientists. We’ll use our hands and brains to take on world-class mathematical challenges, and explore careers for people who like math.


At This Institute You Will

  • Take on advanced math challenges, including mind puzzles that keep mathematicians awake at night!
  • Learn about real-world applications of math.
  • Interact with professional mathematicians from the academic and business worlds.
  • Meet other young Vermonters who share your interests.
  • Learn about the academic and career pathways open to people who enjoy mathematics.

In addition to math, we do field trips, play games, and hold a cookout at North Beach. If you’re a Vermont 9th-11th grader who’s completed Algebra II or beyond, received good grades in math or science, and think math is cool, we hope you’ll join us this summer!

*Vermont girls receive an incentive scholarship to the Math Institute for reduced tuition.

Mathematical Sciences Faculty

My name is Nichole Caisse. I am from a small town in Connecticut. I moved to Vermont in 2005 to go to graduate school at UVM. I have a master’s degree in Applied Mathematics and a second master’s degree in Mathematics Education. I have taught math to students in grades 5 thru college. I have been teaching at UVM for 6 years. I am married and have 3 little boys. We love to spend as much time as possible outside in all weather in all seasons enjoying running, hiking, biking, swimming, alpine or nordic skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, fishing, canoeing, backpacking, car camping, really anything outside exploring nature. I am looking forward to this new role as the director of the Mathematics GIV!
