These worksheets will be marked by mentors provided by the university hosts.
Study day 3 focuses on trigonometry and either combinatorics or sequences and functions.
This course is for year 12 students from state-funded schools, academies and colleges who are interested in applying for places at Oxford University, Imperial College, Durham University and Warwick University to study Mathematics or for students who wish to improve their mathematical problem solving skills in preparation for a university course.
Please note that the course is not suitable for GCSE students.

eastern daylight time If a fundamental goal of schooling is to help prepare young people for the unknowable future, then how might we provide our students with learning experiences that prepare them to creatively respond to uncertainty?What can we do when these students are then expected to work together collaboratively in a group setting?If a fundamental goal of schooling is to prepare young people for the unknowable future, why do we assign students so many clearly defined tasks with predetermined solutions?In the videos below, Schleicher offers lessons for educators and school leaders on how to better prepare their students for success in today’s economy. Collaboration is Key When it comes to working together to solve a problem, U. Employers are seeking candidates with skills in critical thinking, communications, collaboration, and other deeper learning competencies.These skills are among the most steeply rising factors in labor demand.Students will also attempt a mathematical modelling activity on day 3. The course is identical at all venues and applicants are asked to select the most appropriate venue for them.Applicants may be offered a place at an alternative venue if their first choice of venue reaches capacity.The study days will focus on specific problem solving skills that students will need to develop, featuring workshops where students will be supported by mentors from the hosting university.Study day 1 focuses on curve sketching and coordinate geometry.Any student who wishes to apply for a university that requires or accepts the MAT or TMUA admissions tests will benefit from attending.The course also provides a good base for preparing for the STEP examinations.
