Students in Years 7&8 who enjoy and are good at Mathematics are invited to be a part of a Melbourne University programme ‘Micro Mathematicians’. 

This is a free virtual after school extension programme. Selected students have been emailed about this opportunity, but all are invited to apply.

It will run online weekly on Wednesdays from 4pm until 5pm from July 21st until September 8th (via Zoom and Google Classroom). There are a variety of activities on offer that promote mathematical investigation at a high level.

If you are interested please contact Ms. Karen Perkins on perkinsk@ignatius.vic.edu.au to get details on how to access the selection test.

Across Years 7-9 we have 15 students who are undertaking the Melbourne University Mathematics and Statistics research competition. Small group meetings are underway as they work collaboratively to undertake a challenge of their choice, selected from a possible 8 questions.
