Over the past few months, hundreds of our students have been competing in the Caribou Mathematics Competition, which is a worldwide online contest competed against thousands of students all over the world.
The goals of this competition are to:
Show that mathematical puzzles can be fun and that competing in math contests with interactive questions is exciting.
To improve student's problem solving techniques by providing a wide variety of challenging math activities suitable for all students in grades 3-12.
We have had some extraordinary results thus far and here are some students who deserve notable mention for their achievements in the most recent contest:
Year 7 - Ethan Rosorea, Brady Cabral and Zach Bishop came in the top 7%, 9% and 10% in the world respectively (over 10000 students) Year 9 – Simas Babeckas came in the top 10% (over 9600 students) Year 10 – Sophia Banner came in the top 8% (over 1000 students)
Congratulations to all of those that took part, and I hope each student can try and improve on their previous results in the next round of competition which begins 3rd April 2019.
A reminder to students that the top 3 students from each participating year group and the most improved student will receive a reward of a grub day. Also the top 3 students at the end of the contest in May will receive certificates and prizes. Good luck!
