St Mary’s College Junior and Senior School students are being encouraged to participate in the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC).
Suitable for students of all standards, the competition challenges participants to solve 30 problems in just 60-minutes (Year 3-6) or 75 minutes (Year 7-12).
Designed to test mathematical thinking, the problems can be answered just as quickly without a calculator as with one, with questions progressively getting more difficult throughout the competition – challenging even the most gifted of students.
Offered annually to students at St Mary’s College from Year 3-10, this year’s competition will be held on Thursday 9 August.
While some Senior School classes may have entered automatically, the competition is open to all students at the College who fit into the above year range.
Classes already enrolled are Year 7 – Jess Veitch and Wendy Forsyth, Year 8 and Year 9 – Ivano Del Pio, and Year 10 – Andrew Baker.
If your daughter would like to compete and is not in the classes listed above, please contact Andrew Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
About the AMC
The AMC was introduced in Australia in 1978 as the first Australian-wide mathematics competition for students. It has since spread internationally, with students in more than 30 countries attempting the same problems.
In recent years the competition has been available in two formats (online and paper), allowing even more students to participate worldwide.
