Maths skills put to the test


On Wednesday night, excited Year 9s and 10s gathered at the Barfoot and Thompson stadium to test their mathematic skills amongst many other schools in Auckland. Three teams from Sancta Maria College participated in the annual Mathex competition which requires students to solve 20 questions within 30mins.

A runner from each team receives a question from their marker, and each time a team gets their question correct, they gain 5 points and are able to move onto the next question. It is a challenging and fun experience for all participants.

Each team consisted of students who were eager to use their passion for maths to complete as many questions as possible. Their tremendous effort is commended.

Year 9s – Alanna Santoso, Jennifer Zeng, Teresa Croker and Ailish Aquino.

Year 10 (A) – Andrew Botting, Ethan Siao, Niven Cabello and Reuben Cooper.

Year 10 (B) – Joseph George, Ashley Liu, Kathleen Shi and Samara Anubhav.

The Year 9s gained 90/100 points, Year 10 (A) won 90/100 as well and Year 10 (B) had a score of 75/100.
