Australian Mathematics Competition

The Australian Mathematics Competition is being held during Lessons 6 and 7 on Thursday 9 August. Students are asked to solve 30 problems in 60 minutes (Years 3–6) or 75 minutes (Years 7–12).

The problems are designed to test mathematical thinking. Students who have elected to participate in the competition will be supervised by Ms Susan Levitt, and will need to bring a HB or 2B pencil, an eraser and a ruler. Students in Years 3–6 are permitted the use of a calculator (which is to be brought from home); however, students in Years 7–12 are not permitted to use a calculator.

Further information, including practice questions, can be found on the Australian Mathematics Trust website.
