Mathematics Enrichment Classes in Limerick
Mathematics Enrichment Classes 2021/22
After a year of on-line enrichment, we hope to be back with face-to-face classes on campus in January 2022.
If you have registered (and agreed to join the mailing list) we will contact you by email before the 20th of January.
The schedule will be published here closer to the start.
What is it?
The Mathematics Enrichment course is designed to develop a sound understanding of mathematics and improve problem-solving skills. There is little overlap with the mathematics taught in school. While there will be some mathematical theory introduced, the emphasis will be on solving problems rather than accumulating theory. Participants will be trained to create original deductive arguments to establish mathematical facts. The problems studied require inventive thinking rather than applying known techniques.
Who is it for?
These classes are for talented students of mathematics in Transition Year, 5th year or 6th year of secondary school. If you are interested but have not received an invitation by the end of November, please contact us (details below).
You cannot become a problem solver without solving problems on your own!
Therefore, from each participant, the willingness to do some homework is expected.
Many students enjoy to compete with others in areas in which they have a talent. Mathematical Olympiads provide a competitive but friendly environment for mathematically talented students. On all levels, such Olympiads can help to keep up motivation to improve problem solving skills. At Maths Olympiads students with similar interests meet and enjoy to discuss about their mathematical problem solving experience.
Limerick Mathematical Olympiad
We are optimistic that we can run the Limerick Mathematical Olympiad in March 2022 for all participants of the enrichment classes.
