Developing Problem Solving in Year 12 Students
A day of problem-solving for Year 12 students and their teachers.
- Develop and enhance Year 12 students' and their teachers' understanding of problem-solving;
- Discuss the ways in which mathematics can solve real-life contemporary problems;
- Explore some problems used in unversity entrance tests;
- Give teachers the opportunity to work with their students on complex problems;
- Provide suggestions for suitable teaching resources.
Who will benefit from attending?
This event should be accessible to all Year 12 students who wish to develop their mathematical problem-solving skills. Those thinking of applying to study a problem-solving subject like mathematics, computer science, economics, engineering, philosophy or physics at university should find it particularly useful. The style is similar to the Year 12 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.
In particular we'll be investigating some real-life problems.
Teachers who wish to develop their students' problem-solving skills should also find this day beneficial.
