- Introduce students to some of the problems used in university entrance tests;
- Develop teachers' abilities to help their students with problem-solving;

Who will benefit from attending?
This event should be accessible to all Year 12 students who wish to develop their mathematical problem-solving skills. We aim to be as inclusive as possible - in particular, students need not be studying A Level Further Mathematics.
We will be showcasing a variety of problems, ranging from very straightforward to downright tricky, and helping students develop their estimation skills. Some of the puzzles were first seen in university entrance tests, so students thinking of studying mathematics or related subjects at university should find this day particularly helpful.
Teachers who wish to develop their students' problem-solving skills should also find this day beneficial.
