​Students have been selected to participate in the McDonalds Mathematics Teams Challenge to be held on Tuesday 23rd May 2017.  Secondary students will participate in the competition from 11:30am until 2:00pm at Whitsunday Anglican School Hall.  We will leave Calen by bus at 10:00am, we will make a quick stop at North Mackay McDonalds for students to grab a quick snack and arrive at Whitsunday Anglican School at approximately 11:15am.  Students will be given the opportunity to eat their lunch/snack at this time.  Students are to be in the hall by 11:30am.  The competition will run until approximately 2:00pm.  Our arrival back at Calen is expected at about 3:00pm.  The Mathematics Team Challenge allows students to work in teams to solve creative mathematics problems.  Each team is made up of 5 students.  This event will encourage students to work within a team environment, stimulate their interest in mathematics and participate in a competitive and fun intellectual event.
