Programs for Gifted and Talented Students
Each year, gifted mathematics students can choose to participate in the following programs offered by the Australian Mathematics Trust:
Maths Challenge Stage
The Maths Challenge Stage competition usually takes place at our school in semester 1. Students are asked to solve 6 problems. Four of these are done individually. The other two may be discussed in pairs but the solutions must be presented individually. Students have three weeks to work on the solutions to these problems.
Maths Enrichment Stage
The Maths Enrichment Stage is held at our school and runs for sixteen weeks from April to September.
It is a very challenging program where Year 7, 8 and 9 students attempt to solve twelve problems and Year 10 students attempt to solve sixteen.
Different problem levels are offered to each year group.
A teacher from our school marks these problems on a regular basis during the sixteen weeks of the program.
Every Tuesday afternoon, students are invited to attend Maths Tuition sessions after school between 3 & 4pm.
A Maths teacher will be present to offer assistance to students.
Places are limited and students must sign up at the front office prior to the session.
