University of Regina Problem-Solving Workshop

U of R Problem Solving Workshop – First Session Monday September 21st

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 12.

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 being held on Monday evenings, from 6-8 PM,
in the University Riddell Centre room RC 285.

Session dates for this semester are:
September 21st, October 5th, October 19th, November 2nd, November 16th, and
November 30th.

As always, attendance is free. If you are planning to come to one or more of
these sessions, please send us an e-mail so that we know how many copies of
problem sets and other work material to bring.

If you have questions or wish to attend the sessions, you can contact
Patrick Maidorn at maidorn@math.uregina.ca or 585-4013.
