The experience of Arthur Caspelherr, WAMSS student 2021

“The WA Maths Summer School was an engaging and eye-opening experience where I got to learn about interesting new areas of maths while working together and interacting with many like-minded students. Over the course of the five days there, we studied the fields of number theory, minimal surfaces and modular origami, and I really enjoyed taking the time to challenge myself with the problems and try something different to the maths we learn at school. It was also a great privilege to be taught by such passionate and skilled mathematicians as Greg Gamble, Serena Dipierro and Geoffrey Pearce. We had our classes in the new UWA Ezone building, which I found really cool, and the Trinity college where we stayed also provided great facilities and food! Last but not least, I loved meeting other mathematically-minded students there and really enjoyed solving the problems with them as well as playing games together in the evenings. Overall it has been an unforgettable experience and I hope the students who take part in future years enjoy it just as much as I did!”
