Students at North Albany SHS have the opportunity to challenge themselves by participating in the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) in 2020 on Thursday July 30. Read on for more information or click here for an entry form. Please return completed form and fee by June 26.
The competition is subsidised by the Mathematics department and will be $5 for each student.
Running since 1978, the AMC is for students of all standards. Students are asked to solve 30 problems in 75 minutes (Years 7–12).
The problems are designed to test mathematical thinking rather than focus on calculations themselves, thus such questions are designed so that they can be answered just as quickly without a calculator as with one.
The problems get more difficult through the competition, so that at the end they are challenging to the most gifted students.
Students of all standards will make progress through the problems, and also be challenged along the way.
To enrol your child in the AMC please complete the registration form overleaf and return it, with your entry fee, to student services no later than 26th June (Friday week 9)
