We are delighted to be able to offer our Mathematical Enrichment Programme again this year. This programme offers students an opportunity to explore new mathematics with the help of our Faculty. 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 and is free of charge, but we will assume that students are familiar with Junior Cert level mathematics.
Some (but not all!) of the course will focus on contest style problems - so interested students will have a chance to try the NUI Galway Olympiad or maybe even the Irish Mathematical Olympiad which is the national contest. In the past some of our students have even represented Ireland at the International Mathematical Olympiad which is the world's most prestigious mathematical contest.
The marker on the map below shows where the entrance to the Psychology building is. Note that google maps has not been updated since the Psychology building was built so wqe cannot link directly to the room. However, once you enter the Psychology building there will be signs pointing to the room.
The following is the proposed schedule for the 2018 NUI Galway maths enrichment programme.
Each session begins at 11:00am and finishes at 1:30pm. There will be a 20 minute break during the session.
Note that this year, IT Sligo will be participating in the programme. For two of the classes (Jan 27 and Feb 3), students will have the option of attending the class at IT Sligo.
