IIMS/UM High School Problem Workshop
January 23, 30; February 6, 13 2010
INFO:  email R. Craigen or A. Gumel
This is an annual training program for Manitoba students in the Winnipeg area taking grade 10, 11 or 12 mathematics and wishing to improve their performance in high school competitions, and schools hoping to improve their ranking in the competitions.   It is designed as a a fun midwinter "mathematical retreat" spread over four Saturdays,  lunches provided, morning and afternoon problem solving "labs" in which U of M mathletes mentor the younger students, looking at a wide range of contest-style questions and developing a toolkit of problem-solving tools and techniques.   Each day lunch is preceded by a dynamic speaker about some aspect of mathematics, and is followed by a period of mathematical recreation.  Students compete against others in their grade in an in-house competition, with prizes going on the last day to the top three students in each grade level.  Local high schools are requested to send up to six students (preferably spread over all three grades).  In most years a nominal registration fee is charged, which may be paid by the school or by the students' families.  Home schoolers wishing to register may contact us directly by email.   Sponsored by IIMS, U of M, Manitoba Hydro.  See the IIMS Workshop page for further information.
