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.
