Maths Problem Solving

In 2014 we are offering a maths extension workshop. Children will work once a week in an extension class basing their maths on real problems. Once a month they have the opportuntiy to take part in a competition. The competition is designed for Year 7 and 8 students. This course is organised by the Maths Department at Otago University and they have done this for many years. You can find our more at

Here are some of the strategies we use to solve problems.
