Developing Sixth Form Problem Solving

Overview

This event will be of interest to sixth form students and their teachers who are looking to explore university admissions tests and mathematical problem-solving more deeply. Teachers can attend and will have the opportunity to work on problems with their students.

Aims

  • To provide students with an opportunity to begin to increase their depth of mathematical understanding and so gain confidence in attempting more challenging questions and problems.
  • To allow students to discuss and try out problem solving strategies, to think about different ways of looking at example problems and how to approach writing solutions.
  • Maths teachers are encouraged to attend with their students. They will have the opportunity to work on higher-level problems and learn about potential sources of questions/problems to take back to the classroom.

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, or for students who just enjoy solving mathematical problems.

The event will also be useful for maths teachers who would like to gain more experience and ideas of how to introduce problem solving within their own classrooms.
