Who will benefit from attending?
This event is ideal for students who are thinking of applying to study mathematics, engineering or related university courses and wish to develop their problem-solving skills. Teachers with students who are preparing to apply for such courses, or who wish to develop their skills in advanced problem-solving techniques amongst their sixth-form mathematics students, will find this course beneficial.
Parts of the course will be for students and teachers working together; at other times, students and teachers will have separate sessions. The day will include:
- A session for all on competition questions, and how they can be used to stimulate and nurture advanced problem-solving techniques
- A session for students on university application and interview requirements
- A session for teachers on the maths skills that universities are looking for
- A session for all on different approaches to solving difficult mathematical problems
Presenters: Mike Baxter, Bob Summers and James Groves
The first session starts at 10:30am. Lunch will be provided
The event is free to all students and teachers.
