Gain career insights, mentoring, and guidance from renowned mathematicians and scientists.
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.
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!

Kevin Beard, GIV’s Director of the Mathematics Institute, teaches statistics at the University of Vermont, and has 13 years experience teaching high school statistics including AP classes. That follows 12 years working in the accounting software field for companies as varied as Ford and Westinghouse down to two-person start-ups. Originally from Connecticut, Beard has a B.A. in Economics and an MBA in international finance from the University of Connecticut. Because statistics are “useful and practical,” Beard says he never hears students asking why they need to learn the subject. “Everyone should have a basic understanding of stats,” he adds. “I can honestly say that teaching has been my favorite occupation. I can’t see doing anything else.”
