**The Challenge and Enrichment Stages of the Program**

At each level there is a Challenge Stage in the first part of the year and an Enrichment Stage for the remaining part of the year.

For the Challenge Stage the students are given a set of six challenging mathematics problems. The students have three weeks in which to solve the problems (on their own) and to prepare the solutions.

In the Enrichment Stage the students study a number of topics in mathematics. For each topic a specific problem is set for the students to solve. As with the Challenge Stage, they do this without outside help and hand in their solutions.
