MAV runs a range of activites for students. These are summarised below. Visit the relevant pages for more information.
Maths Talent Quest
The Maths Talent Quest (MTQ) is an annual activity aimed at promoting interest in mathematics and fostering positive attitudes amongst students, teachers and parents. The focus of the MTQ is on the process of mathematical investigations and relating mathematics to everyday life.
State-wide Games Days
A Maths Games Day is an opportunity for students to develop their mathematical talents and thinking skills in a setting where maths is regarded as fun and worthwhile with like-minded students from a diverse range of schools.
VCE Maths Revision Program
MAV's VCE Mathematics Revision Program assists VCE students in preparation for their exams. Students receive a comprehensive online course with videos from VCAA exam assessors and CAS experts. They also get detailed notes and access to live webinars.
Girls in STEM days
Girls in STEM days for studnets in year 9 to 11 are designed to inspire students using the personal experiences and stories of women working in STEM based careers. Selected events will also include hands-on experiences for students to engage in the exploration of mathematics in real-life STEM contexts.
Maths Camp for regional students
From 2018 to 2020 MAV has been funded by the Department of Education and Training, through the Strategic Partnerships Program, to host the Mathematics Camp. The camp is aimed at current Year 10 students who live in regional Victoria and who are deemed to have high potential in the area of mathematics.
The aim of the program is to provide a chance for students to gather with like-minded peers and explore hands-on, industry related problems. The MAV will be partnering with four mathematical industries who will provide mentoring, site visits, and the opportunity for students to solve a contemporary real-life problem.
National Mathematics Summer School (NMSS) Canberra
Founded in 1969, the National Mathematics Summer School is a selective camp that caters for students from all over Australia. To be eligible to apply you must be in Year 11 this year and not only enjoy mathematics but must also be very mathematically able. It is a two-week program held at the Australian National University in Canberra in January. Many enduring friendships are made on this very special summer school, and each year a few past students return to help run the program.
