The Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS) is offering an exciting short course extension program for students in years 5 and 6, involving Inquiry-Based Learning.
Theme: The greatest mathematics discoveries
Participants will be guided by our students and staff to develop an inquiry question and present their learning on a digital poster. Teachers, students, and parents will receive useful resources.
Session 1 – Thursday 29 June, 4pm to 6pm
ASMS students will present our theme, explore how mathematics can help us appreciate the patterns in nature, art and music, and how to design a poster that conveys this relationship.
Session 2 – Thursday 10 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 7 September, 1.30pm to 3.30pm
Participants showcase their work, celebrate their achievements, and receive their certificate during our International Science Fair.
Students attending must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or teacher on the day. Please ensure bookings are made for all attendees.
