Australian Mathematics Competition

More Info: IMG 4703 Download

The Australian Mathematics Competition is a program run in most schools across Australia. The problems are designed to test mathematical thinking and the questions get more difficult through the competition, so that at the end they are challenging to the most gifted students. Two students who achieved amazing results in the competition were Steven Pham, achieving in the top 95th percentile and Shotaro Goto, achieving in the 99th percentile for the last two years running.  Both of these boys are amazing and humble mathematicians.

And in other Maths news, last week, two maths teams competed against another twenty schools from the area in a Maths Challenge.  The teams consisted of Year 7 and 8 students competing in an afternoon of relays, team work and speed activities. 

Both teams represented the College proudly and finished in the top half of their competitive fields.

A huge thank you to Chris Tooley for his time organising, coaching and accompanying these fine students to the event.

The teams were

TEAM 1: Ronan Carter, Tim O'Brien and Isaac Cashman

TEAM 2: Azariah Taulia, Kentaro Goto and Holly Barnes

Congratulations to all students who participated in the challenge.
