FREE Math Mondays at the U of R for gr. 7-8 Students from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Regina is once again offering a series of free problem-solving sessions aimed at interested students in Grades 7 to 10.

The focus of these sessions is twofold. First and foremost, they are an opportunity for students with an interest in mathematics to meet each other and be exposed to a range of  mathematical subjects that would not be covered in the standard high school curriculum. The sessions also contain a strong problem-solving component. Students will work through a variety of mathematical problems in order to better understand specific problem solving strategies and to work toward participation in mathematics competitions such as the University of Waterloo Mathematics Contests or the Saskatchewan Math Challenge.

The problem solving sessions are held in the University's Riddell Center, room RC 286.

Winter 2015 Schedule
Mondays, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., on:
January 26, February 9, February 23, March 9 and March 23

As always, attendance is free. Each session is an independent unit, so you can come to as few or as many of them as you wish. If you are planning to come to any session, please send an e-mai to patrick.maidorn@uregina.cal in advance so that we know how many copies of problem sets and other work material to bring.

Finally, while we primarily tailor material to students in Grades 7-10, we can accept students in slightly higher or lower grades. If you wish to attend, but are outside of the Grade 7-10 range, please contact:  patrick.maidorn@uregina.ca
