ATU Sligo is offering an extra-curricular Mathematics Enrichment Programme for senior cycle students commencing on 02-Feb-2023. Classes will take place mainly on Thursday evenings between February and May. The programme is likely to be of interest to students who have a strong interest in mathematics, who enjoy mathematical challenges and who are keen to expand their knowledge of the subject beyond the post-primary curriculum. Our goal is to introduce students to the excitement and buzz of mathematical discovery – of finding a new method or idea to solve a problem that had previously seemed impossible. The course is open to any interested student (living north or south of the border) and is free of charge, but we will assume that students are familiar with Junior Cert level mathematics.

It will include some consideration of mathematical problem-solving, in the style of the Irish and International Mathematical Olympiads which is the world’s most prestigious mathematical contest. Students will have the option of participating in the selection contests for the Irish teams for the International Mathematical Olympiad.
