Have Some Fun Mathematics

Scotch College recently participated in the 2014 Have Sum Fun Mathematics Competition run by the Mathematics Association of WA. The "Have Sum Fun" Competition is an exciting mathematics initiative that uses a quiz night format. Teams of six students race against the clock to solve four intense rounds of eight challenging problems. The majority of schools in WA enter this competition.

Year 11/12 was represented by Vaughan Chin (Year 11, Ferguson), Frank Lee (Year 11, Brisbane), Bailey Banfield (Year 11, Cameron), Ralph Thompson (Year 12, Alexander), Riley Aitken (Year 12, Cameron) and Matthew Mann (Year 12, St Andrews). The senior team performed particularly well, placing 5th on the night, only 2 points behind the eventual winners. This is an outstanding effort by our students.
