The Canberra Mathematics Enrichment programme consists of enrichment sessions, and the option of participating in the International Tournament of Towns - an international competition organised from Moscow in which Canberra students have participated for many years.
The programme is organised in conjunction with the Australian Mathematics Trust at the University of Canberra and is about enrichment rather than acceleration though the school syllabus. Students will be exposed to a range of extra-curricular material, with an emphasis on solving problems in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
The aims of the Programme are to:
- foster enjoyment in mathematics;
- develop problem-solving skills;
- prepare for the Tournament of the Towns competition.
Classes are run every Friday of term from 5:00 to 6:30pm, until the scheduled date of the International Tournament of Towns competition.
Parents, teachers and principals are encouraged to contact the Canberra Mathematics Enrichment programme team with recommendations of capable students whom they think would benefit from the programme. We ask that you write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
