Content

This event is ideal for Year 13 students who are applying to study mathematics, engineering or related university courses. Teachers with students who are applying for such courses will find this course helpful. The style is similar to the Year 13 problem-solving events put on by the AMSP in the first term, but there's no overlap in content, and those who enjoyed the earlier problem solving day should find this day enjoyable.
