Pinjarra Murray Times - - THE SCHOOL REPORT -

EMER­I­TUS Pro­fes­sor Ken Har­ri­son hosted a spe­cial lec­ture for ATAR Maths stu­dents at Pinjarra Se­nior High School.

Pro­fes­sor Har­ri­son is a mem­ber of the com­mit­tees that de­vel­oped the ATAR math­e­mat­ics cour­ses and the ATAR math­e­mat­ics ex­ams.

The aim of the lec­ture was to pre­pare stu­dents for the ATAR ex­ams by giv­ing them an in­sider’s per­spec­tive on both the sub­ject mat­ter and exam prepa­ra­tion.

Pro­fes­sor Har­ri­son also men­tors the Mur­doch Uni­ver­sity stu­dents who par­tic­i­pate in the Path­ways to STEM pro­gram, which pro­vides on­line tu­tor­ing sup­port to stu­dents in re­gional ar­eas.

Pinjarra Se­nior High School is one of the schools whose stu­dents re­ceive sup­port through this pro­gram.

Pro­fes­sor Ken Har­ri­son gives some ad­vice to the Pinjarra SHS Maths stu­dents.
