Maths Challenge

Maths Challenge

In 2020, At Nailsworth Primary, we have entered the Powerful Learners of Mathematics and Numeracy Challenge as coordinated by the south Australian Primary Maths Association. The students involved are part of an extra-curricular group, Maths Challenge. Their previous year’s teacher nominates the children as students who enjoy collaborating in real-world problem solving using maths, creative and critical thinking. An invitation is given, and the children choose to be part of the group.

There is an upper primary group, Years 5-7 and a middle primary group, Year 3 and 4.

The students meet, once a week for 90 minutes. In these sessions, they investigate a topic they are passionate about and apply mathematics to it. They then submit this investigation for state-wide judging.

In 2020 we had 12 students achieve Highly Commended Awards and as a group won State Winner, First Year Award.
