Mathematics Enrichment classes
Welcome and thank you for your interest in our program for mathematically talented students. We are pleased to announce that the course will run again in 2019 and is now open for enrolments.
The main aim of the program is to increase the student’s interest in mathematics by engaging in activities that develop a sound mathematical understanding and to engage in challenges that will enhance the mathematical problem-solving skills of the students. These skills are essential in preparing and equipping our students to the challenges they face in the modern technology focused economy. The program is suitable for a broad range of mathematically talented students. Students will be issued with a certificate upon completion of the course.
The topics covered 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 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.
The classes have been scheduled for 8 weeks in Term 2 (from Monday, 29 April 2019) and 8 weeks in Term 3 (from Monday, 22 July 2019). Places are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. The sessions for each year are listed below. Note that these may be added to or cancelled according to demand.
|School Year||Alternative Days||Alternative Times|
|Year 5||Tuesday||4:00-5:00pm OR|
|Year 6||Monday*||4:00-5:00pm OR|
|Year 7||Monday*||5:00-6:00pm OR|
*Note: There will be no classes during the week of 17-21 June 2019. There will be no classes on the public holiday so Term 2 classes (except for the Monday class) will finish the week of 25-28 June 2019. The last Monday classes for Term 2 will end on the Monday, 1 July 2019.
