Saturday Morning Mathematics Sessions

Dear Parent/Caregiver,

The Mathematical Association of South Australia is a volunteer association that supports mathematics education. We are keen to promote mathematics amongst the youth of South Australia and proudly offer the Student Problem Solving program to be held on several Saturdays in each year.  This opportunity is designed for highly motivated students in Years 4 to 11 who are interested in developing their problem-solving skills in Mathematics beyond the school curriculum. Students will be challenged to think more deeply about problems and gain practice in competition type questions.

The program has been developed by Keith Hamann, supported by Michael Bammann and John Leydon, who has for many years written the SA Schools Mathematics Competition papers and has been highly involved with the Australian Mathematics Olympiad Committee.

Students can attend  Saturday morning problem solving programs between 9.30 and 12.30 as long as they would like or the whole time, at a cost of $5 per session,

You are asked to complete an online registration/consent form for your child.

Students in a Years 4 to 11 who are interested in developing their problem-solving skills in mathematics beyond the school curriculum are encouraged to attend.

For more information about the Saturday Maths Problem Solving sessions please contact Michael Bammann: Michael is a member of MASA’s Committee and he helps identify Year 11 students that may be eligible to attend National Mathematics Summer School held in Canberra each January.


Saturday Morning Problem-Solving Classes – 16th March 2024

Dear Parents of Saturday Morning Problem Solvers,

Our next scheduled Saturday Morning Session will be on Saturday March 16th.

The Norwood and St Peter’s Council will be holding their annual fete on Linde Reserve from 11am to 3pm. The students normally use the reserve for morning tea.

The stall holders use the Church of the Holy Name carpark.

Please be aware that you will be able to drop your child off for the session, but parking is going to be at a premium directly outside the MASA building. There will be plenty of parking in nearby side streets.

Look forward to seeing the enthusiastic problem solvers on Saturday March 16th.

Kind Regards

Michael Bammann, Sharon Kennare, John Leydon and David Billett
