Mathematics Enrichment Program
The Mathematics Enrichment Program (PDF*107KB) has been offered by the University of Southern Queensland since 2007 and is a structured program designed to improve mathematical problem solving skills in gifted high-school students who display aptitude for mathematics beyond what is offered in the standard high school currirculum. Such students could potentially benefit from exposure to more problem solving techniques not traditionally offered.
- Encourage further study in mathematics;
- Challenge students;
- Help students perform at a high level in mathematics competitions.
Who can attend?
The program is aimed to suit the mathematical ability of Year 9 and 10 students.
Interested students and schools in remote locations should contact Associate Professor Linda Galligan to discuss alternative methods of offering the program.
How to register?
- Students can reigster their interest with the School's Head of Mathematics.
- RSVP to Debbie White (email: email@example.com or phone 07 4631 2361) by 5pm on Friday 21 February 2014.
- Please note: As this program was over-subscribed last year, please rank your students: the top condidates first.
There is no cost to attend the program.
The program runs from 4.00 - 6.00 pm on Thursday afternoon at USQ. Refreshments are provided.
