Programs

Supersigma offers enrichment activities for primary students who are keen to explore unusual topics in Mathematics.

What are Supersigma Programs?

We offer mathematics activities that sit outside of the school curriculum, giving students the opportunity to engage with challenging topics they would otherwise not encounter in the classroom. We focus on developing problem solving skills as students delve into rich investigations with an emphasis on explaining our results.

These are enrichment programs and targeted at high-achieving students. There is no assumed knowledge and any required skills be taught as part of the program. However, it is recommended that students are confident with simplifying fractions, multiplication tables, and common factors.
