Primary Maths Extension Group

Program

Session 1 – Thursday 10 June, 4pm to 6pm

ASMS students will present our theme, What Can Mathematics Do for the World. Students learn how maths can be used to explore and solve environmental issues, and how to design a poster that conveys mathematical concepts.

Explorations may extend to interpretation of statistics, selective data analysis, developing graphical representations of data, modelling and beyond.

Session 2 – Thursday 5 August, 4pm to 6pm

ASMS staff and students will work with participants on the development of their poster. Teachers and parents will gain insight into how student agency in problem-based learning can extend students understanding of mathematics.

Poster due – Thursday 26 August

Your Digital Poster should be uploaded by Thursday 26 August to allow enough time for printing, prior to the International Science Fair expo. PDF files are preferred; however, Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, tiff, and jpg files can be used.

Session 3 – Thursday 2 September, 1.30pm to 3.15pm

Participants showcase their work, celebrate their achievements, and receive their certificate during our International Science Fair Expo.
