During 2014, Inquisitive Minds have run Year 8 and 9 Talented Mathematicians Workshops in venues around NSW.
Last week, we ran one of these events for eighty students from seven different schools at Wagga Wagga RSL.
Students participated in a competitive lesson where they learnt a range of important problem solving strategies. Then, for the first time ever, we asked students to pair up with students from other schools for the hands-on problem solving competition.
Although this was a stretching experience for some, It was great to see so many students work really well alongside people that they had never met before!
