Australian Maths Competition

Miss Angela Brittain | Head of STEM

In an attempt to discover the country’s best problem solvers, some of our SCOTS PGC College maths enthusiasts nominated to take part in this year’s  Australian Maths Competition (AMC).

The AMC is an engaging 30-problem competition that demonstrates the importance and relevance of mathematics in students’ everyday lives; it is open to students in Years 3 to 12 and takes place during Term 3.

Twenty-one of our students took up the challenge and we are very pleased to acknowledge the following students who achieved excellent results and will be recognised at our next Assembly:

  • Benn Hunter – Credit
  • Isaac Ratcliffe – Credit
  • Heather Cox – Credit
  • Will Gilmore – Distinction
  • Hannah Myer – Prize Winner

Special congratulations to Hannah Myer in Year 9, who was recognised by the Australian Maths Trust as a ‘Prize Winner’.  Hannah placed in the top 0.3% of Year 9 students in Australia!  As a result, she was invited to attend a special dinner to receive her award.  This is a wonderful achievement – Well done Hannah!
