Itâ€™s competition season in Maths! In Term 2, NSG students participated in a range of competitions which are currently being graded.

All of Year 7 participated in the Australian Maths Trust (AMT): *Computational and Algorithmic Thinking* contest - a one-hour problem-solving competition, promoting curiosity and multiple modes of thinking. 249 students from Years 7-10 completed the AMC *Maths Challenge* competition and 92 students have commenced the AMC *Maths Enrichment* programme, designed to encourage creative problem solving in Maths.

This year for the first time, 5 students from the Informatics Club participated in *Cupcakes*, the UNSW High School Programming Competition. Here they worked to hone their skills in thinking about and implementing algorithms.

Last but not least, 18 students attempted the UNSW* Annual School Mathematics Competition*. Participants had three hours to attempt six incredibly difficult questions requiring mathematical insight and ingenuity.

We eagerly await the results of these competitions in Term 3!
