Learning

Outline

Mathematics Oxford summer school at Oxford Summer Courses for ages 16-17 years. Study Mathematics with Oxford Summer Courses. Go behind the numbers and learn how to reason with mathematics as a solid base for your arguments. Learn Maths with us, and you’ll look beyond simple calculations, find out about fundamental theory, and everything there is to know about real problem-solving. We’ll also explore the essentials of mathematical thinking to build a solid base of knowledge that you can apply to problems later in your study and through life. Make your maths bulletproof by getting to grips with the theory behind calculations. You’ll explore what makes an argument rigorous and how to prove (or disprove) a mathematical argument. Set and reflect on ambitious goals with our support, engage in tutorial Q&A sessions, participate in an academic skills masterclass for critical thinking development, explore future career pathways through expert speakers, attend a university fair to meet representatives from various universities, and have the chance to visit different Oxford colleges for a comprehensive Oxford summer school experience.

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial-style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you'll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The Summer Courses experience

Moving to the 16-17 age group, academic pursuits deepen with seminars, tutorials, and independent study sessions. Goal-setting and reflection sessions remain integral, offering a personalised approach to academic and personal growth. The University Fair and college visits provide valuable insights into higher education options, enriching the overall Oxford summer school experience.
