ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM - Mathematics and Science

Absolute Maximums is available to all Year 7 to 12 students each Monday after school in the Helene Library from 3.40pm to 5.00pm (dates and times subject to change).

Maths teachers are in attendance to support students with their home study, preparing for assessment tasks, to explain a concept they are unsure about or to assist students to catch up with work missed. Students are encouraged to use their time to also reflect upon their progress in Maths, to work independently as well as collaboratively with other students in attendance. This program enables students the ability to gain in confidence in their skills practice as well as take time in these sessions to attempt more challenging and extended problems.

Absolute Maximums is not a tutoring session or an "extra" Maths class but individualised assistance for students.

An absolute maximum is the highest point on a graph. For many students attending, Absolute Maximums allows them to move towards their personal absolute maximum and can sometimes be a turning point in their mathematical understanding.
