Micro Mathematicians is an extension program aimed at advanced Y5/6, Y7/8 and Y9/10 students who are passionate about mathematics. Students will explore mathematical problems at a deep level following the inquiry process.
What will students do?
Throughout the programs, students will take part in a variety of activities designed to promote mathematical investigation at a high level. Some of the key mathematical areas we will focus on include, but are not limited to, Number Theory; Data Analysis; Combinatorics; Geometry & Topology and Mathematical Biology.
- Problem solving: engaging with challenging problems through various approaches like modelling, collaborative discussion, construction, proof, and arts and crafts. Activities are open ended to allow students to extend the activity as far as they like and in any direction they choose.
- Extended Research Project: working on an extended project. Students can choose between a range of provided problems. Problems are broad and students will need to decide how to narrow the problem down, in what direction they wish to take the problem, what information they will need to answer the problem and what is a suitable approach.
- Research Presentations: Students will be required to present their mathematical research to each other, focusing on the methods they used, the results they concluded, and the questions that still remain open.
