This year William Carey is again offering a new series of challenging enrichment courses for our top mathematicians. This course is designed and managed by the Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) which is the key organisation that runs mathematics competitions (Olympiads) in the country. The Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians is targeted towards students with a talent in mathematics who would like something more.
The challenge lasts for 16 weeks between April and September. The program focuses on teaching additional mathematics not traditionally taught at high school and students are encouraged to develop their ability to prove results not just get the correct answer. The program is very challenging and students should not expect to easily master the skills involved.
As part of this program each student would be expected to spend roughly 30 minutes – one hour each week working through the providing resources and attempting the challenge for each chapter.
Students who successfully complete the program will have their diligence and achievement recognised in their yearly reports. An extra subject will be included in their reports including their overall mark in the program they completed and a comment about their work.
Details of the different programs are available here.
