Year 12 Problem Solving Summer School

In the summer of 2013, the FMSP offered a series of five live online workshops to help year 12 students develop their problem-solving skills in pure mathematics. These workshops assumed knowledge of C1 and C2 mathematics only.

Students attending the workshops got the chance to interact with the presenter via instant messaging and online polling.

Students accessed the sessions via the internet.

All FMSP registered schools/colleges received information about how to access the sessions.

STEP and AEA questions were considered as part of each workshop. These were made available a week prior to each session.
