The Mighty Mathex Marvels
Term 4 saw Kelvin
Road compete in their first ever Mathex Competition. Both the Senior and Junior school
held their own events, which saw each class pit their best maths students in a
fast paced race to 25 questions. Each group had four members, with one person
nominated as runner to collect the questions. As time ticked by, each team
worked together to solve and return their answers to the marker as quickly as possible.
The marker checked their answers carefully and a new question was given to the team runner if they were correct. The team's classes cheered them
on as excitement escalated toward the final few moments and the countdown
buzzer was heard. The judges collaborated and returned with the tally, resulting in a
close 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Room 12 came in 3rd place with 17
points, Room 14, second with 20 points and Room 19 knocked up a staggering
21 points to receive this year’s 1st place and first ever Mathex cup title.
