Problem Solving Workshops

Problem Solving Workshops

MANSW – Inquisitive Minds Problem Solving Workshops are a great way to provide students with unique, engaging maths activities.

Stage 2 Out of the Box, Stage 3 Out of the Box and Year 7 – 9 Problems, Patterns, Pictures, Puzzles Workshops each include an interactive lesson on strategic problem solving and a hands-on problem solving competition.

We are able to run Workshops for all ability levels in your school. The length of workshops can be adjusted to your school’s needs and we are able to run up to three separate workshops in a day.

We also run Talented Workshops in central venues, where capable students are given an enriching maths experience.
