Mathematics Enrichment classes
This year, given the current situation with regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are planning to run the 2020 Maths Enrichment Program in Term 3 and Term 4 and will provide an update on the Program in Term 2.
Welcome and thank you for your interest in our program for mathematically talented students.
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.

To find us, look for Building 314 on the lower middle right hand side on the campus map. The administrative staff associated with the Mathematics Enrichment program are in Room 314.316 – the Administration office for the School of Electrical Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences located on the right hand side of the building, after coming up the main stairs to Level 3 and passing through the automatic opening glass doors.
