Are you Smarter than a 6th Grader?


“Are you Smarter than A 6th Grader”

The annual competition to celebrate World Mathematics Day was a huge success and continues to unearth new budding mathematicians. This year the field was dominated by juniors, with a strong contingent from Year 7. The event which saw teams of three participate in the quiz, tested their mathematical understanding in fields such as general knowledge, logic, estimation, time as well as work from female mathematicians, due to it also being International Women’s day. 

Congratulations to the winning team whom also tasted success last year, Rubin Hong, Reuben Tsang and Luke Hammer. The Year 9 team were down by a point at the half way mark but displayed lots of quality to finish strongly! 

There were some very good efforts, particularly from some of the Year 7 teams. It is always great to see so many young and enthusiastic students with a love of mathematics. 

Congratulations to all teams!
