Math Help Centre @ PHS

The Math Help Centre is open daily during the second half of lunch (11:10-11:35).  It is staffed on a rotation basis by various members of our department.  Students are asked to sign in on their teacher’s page when they arrive to assist us in tracking the usage of this room.  Please have your questions ready to help us assist you better.  Students are welcome to stay as long as they need to get their questions answered.  Individual math teachers also offer extra help in their classrooms at lunch or by appointment.  Please ask your teacher when they are available.

Math Contests @ PHS

As part of the enhanced program students will be writing the Pascal, Cayley or Fermat math contests.  Preparation for the contests will be done in class but students are also encouraged to challenge themselves outside of the classroom.  Resources can be found on the University of Waterloo CEMC webiste.  Students may also choose to write any of the other available contests.  Students in regular math programs are also welcome to challenge their problem solving skills by writing these contests.
