Maths Modelling Challenge 2022
July 18 @ 8:00 am - September 2 @ 3:00 pm
Maths Modelling challenge
Ever wondered the maths behind how a pandemic spreads? Or the environmental impact of getting a lift to school? Or do you want to find out the link between climate change and your WhatsApp messages?
Put your analytic brains to the test, working in small groups students have four real world mathematics challenges to choose and work through. Celebrating mathematics and the spirit of competition, this event aims to help high school students develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers.
The challenge is open to year’s 7 – 12 with entries welcome from all teams across year levels. There are no minimum team requirements per school entry. Enter a class in all year levels or just one, whatever works for you! Note that, while in last year’s challenge year levels were restricted to one topic, this year teams are free to choose from any of the four topics. If your teams participated in last year’s challenge, feel free to choose another topic this year!
Join in and explore how mathematical modelling can show us not only how the world around us works – but how it can help to change it.
Submissions are online and will be judged by UniSC academics with prizes then awarded.
Registrations are open now!
NEW Closing Date for submissions is Friday 2nd Sept, 3PM
Prize announced by 16th September
