The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) held on Thursday 28 July saw 141 of our top Mathematics students from Year 7 to Year 12 compete against students from across Australia in this annual event. The AMC, now in its 38th year, is one of the largest mathematical competitions of its kind. It provides students with the opportunity to use their problem solving skills to solve questions involving everyday scenarios in a competitive and encouraging environment. For our top Mathematics students, it gave them a chance to compete against each other and their state in questions they may not encounter through their everyday studies.
Students were required to solve thirty challenging problems in 75 minutes. The problems become increasingly difficulty throughout the paper, with this most difficult question being award the highest points to those who can solve it. It was fantastic to see each of our students working diligently throughout the 75 minutes checking and re-checking their solutions. In early November, participating students will receive a certificate and a detailed report showing how they achieved on each problem.
Congratulations to all of our students who challenged and extended their problem solving skills in this competition. Looking forward to your results!
