Some of our secondary students have been chosen to participate in the Mackay Mathematics Teams Challenge to be held on Tuesday the 4th June 2019.
Students will participate in the competition from 11:30am until 2:15pm at Holy Spirit College. We will leave Calen by bus at 9:00am – we will make a stop at North Mackay McDonalds for students to grab a snack or lunch and arrive at Holy Spirit College at approximately 11:15am. Students are to be seated by 11:30am. The competition will run until approximately 2:15pm. Our arrival back at Calen is expected by 3:00pm.
The Mathematics Team Challenge allows students to work in teams to solve creative mathematics problems. Each team is made up of five (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.
Students should bring lunch/money, water bottle, pencil case, calculator and working out paper. Please sign the permission slip and medical form and return to the school office ASAP.
We are also looking for parents to assist on the day. Each team requires a marker (answers are supplied) to act on their behalf. Please indicate on the permission form if you are able to assist and Mrs Gardner will supply more information.
