A further twenty five students were awarded a Proficiency certificate for achieving a pre-set score. Altogether fifty five students participated in this year’s competition. Every competitor was provided with an individual performance report.
The 2018 Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) was the 40th annual competition. Hundreds of thousands of students in primary and secondary schools from around 30 countries sat the AMC on August 9.
Students from Year 3 to Year 12 compete on the same day, making it the largest single event on the Australian education calendar. An Australian initiative, the AMC was introduced in 1978 as the first competition of its kind in schools here. It is now a truly international competition, having become the major school mathematics enrichment event and benchmark for mathematical ability throughout the Pacific and South-East Asia.
The AMC tests everything from basic numeracy skills through to advanced problem solving. This is the eighth year that a Proficiency certificate has been awarded for students reaching a pre-set standard in both skills and problem solving, using their skills in the world around them.
The competition is conducted by the not-for-profit Canberra based Australian Mathematics Trust under the trusteeship of the University of Canberra.
Congratulations to all our award recipients.
Well done, to all students who participated in the competition.
