Lancaster

Overview

An enrichment day designed to improve the problem-solving skills of Year 12 students. The day will include a discussion of how mathematics can solve real contemporary problems, a session for students on using problem solving in real life, and a session to try out problems in real contexts.

Aims

  • Give teachers the opportunity to work with their students on complex problems
  • Introduce students and teachers to solving complex real-life problems

Who will benefit from attending?

This event is ideal for Year 12 students who are thinking of applying to study mathematics, engineering or related university courses. Teachers with students who are preparing to apply for such courses will find this course helpful. The style is similar to the Year 12 problem-solving events put on by the AMSP in November, but there's no overlap in content, and those who enjoyed the November problem-solving day should find this day enjoyable.
