Sixth Form Student and Teacher Problem Solving Conference

Norwich

Overview

This conference will be of interest to year 12 students and their teachers who are looking to explore mathematical problem-solving more deeply. It is open to any student and it will be particularly relevant to students going on to sit STEP, MAT or TMUA examinations. Teachers can attend with up to ten students and will have the opportunity to work on problems with their students and attend separate CPD sessions for problem-solving.

Basic refreshments will be provided for everyone during breaks in the programme, but both students and teachers should bring their own packed lunch with them (which should not include any products containing peanuts). 

Aims

  • Allow students to attempt problems both in groups and on their own
  • Give students a chance to explore an area of maths not in the standard curriculum
  • Get students thinking about writing and presenting their solutions to problems
  • Give students the chance to attempt questions from the TMUA and MAT examinations.

Who will benefit from attending?

Up to 10 Year 12 students can attend FREE of charge from each school/college.

Teachers accompanying their students also attend for free.
