Event Details

The Mathematical Association of Tasmania (MAT) is offering students in Years 4 - 6 in northern Tasmania the opportunity to participate in a four-hour problem solving workshop on Sunday 28th October 2018 from 12:00noon - 4:00pm (drop off from 11:30am, pick up until 4:10pm). The cost is $20 per student and includes a pizza lunch for participants.

The problems that we will explore are:

1. How do bees survive?
2. Is maths everywhere? (this will involve a short walk; please bring weather-appropriate clothing)
3. Where's the maths in lego?
4. What's the best strategy for building a dog run?

Due to presenter availability, there is an overall limit of 80 studentsRegistrations close at 11:30pm on Friday October 19th. This will allow us to plan for medical and dietary requirements.

  • The registration process is lengthy and is best completed by the child's parent.
  • We CANNOT accept cash payments on the day; students MUST be registered via Eventbrite by 11:30pm on Friday 26th October.

For more information about the event, please view the MAT website (https://mat.aamt.edu.au) or email Emily Peterson (emily.peterson@education.tas.gov.au).

 

FAQs

Can parents/guardians (or non-registered siblings) attend the event?

Unfortunately, no. All of our presenters and volunteers have a current Working with Vulnerable People card and allowing other adults to attend this event is not possible. Our presenters and volunteers also have clearly defined roles and are known to MAT; producing a WWVP card on the day is not sufficient grounds for us allowing you to stay. In regard to non-registered siblings, we have a limit of 80 students attending and therefore cannot accommodate others. We have also ordered only enough pizza for registered participants (unfortunately, non-registered others cannot stay for lunch).


Can I update my registration information or request a refund?

Yes, up until 11:30pm on Friday 19th October (we need time to plan for medical and dietary requirements), via Eventbrite. Refund requests that occur after this time (due to illness, etc.) can be made via email to Emily Peterson (emily.peterson@education.tas.gov.au). No refunds can be requested after 12:00noon on Saturday 27th October, as per our Eventbrite refund policy.

 

Do I need to bring my Eventbrite ticket with me?

No, you don't. You will need to sign your child in at the start of the workshop and out at the end though (via our hard-copy signature sheet on the day).
