The Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS) is offering an exciting short course extension program for students in years 5 to 7, involving Inquiry-based learning.
Theme: What Can Mathematics Do for the World?
How do we make the right decisions for humankind? How can we make predictions about the planet and the future?
Participants will be guided by our staff and students to develop an inquiry question and present their learning on a digital poster. Teachers, students, and parents will receive packs of useful resources.
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.
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.
Students attending must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or teacher on the day. Please ensure bookings are made for all attendees.
