Mathematics enrichment classes
The course will run again in 2016 and will be open for enrolments in December 2015.
The classes in 2016 are scheduled in Term 2 (from Monday 9 May to Friday 1 July) and Term 3 (from Monday 18 July to Friday 9 September), 8 weeks in each block. The sessions for each year level are listed below. Note that these may be added to or cancelled, according to demand.
|School Year||Alternative Days||Alternative Times|
|Year 5||Tuesday or||4:00-5:00pm|
|Year 6||Monday* or||4:00-5:00pm|
|Year 7||Monday* or||5:00-6:00pm|
*Classes will not be running on Western Australia Day, Monday 6 June, and in lieu of the holiday, Monday classes will finish a week later.
The topics covered (there will be little or no overlap with topics covered in previous years) by the program are selected to complement the school curriculum and to challenge students with some non-standard problems. The course presenters are drawn from the WA mathematical community. The Course Director, Professor Lou Caccetta, is an outstanding mathematical scientist who is recognised nationally and internationally for his excellence in Teaching and Learning and Research and Development. The classes run in second and third terms as scheduled in an attachment to the letter for parents.
The classes are intended for able, but not necessarily brilliant, students. However, we point out that the program is not intended for weak students who need remedial studies. There will be some overlap with the mathematics covered at school but in general we intend to cover topics that are new to the students.
The opening date for 2016 enrolment is 1 December, 2015, and the closing date is 29 April, though late enrolments are usually accepted into early May. (There is no fee reduction for late enrolments.)
