Once again a QASMT student has won the National Maths Talent Quest. This year, Georgina Sheu (2015 graduate), has won with her Maths IA which was submitted at the end of 2015. Congratulations Georgina!
The National Mathematics Talent Quest is unique in Australia. It is the culmination of local competitions that see students’ work and report on a mathematical inquiry, often over an extended time.
It is an opportunity for students to complete investigation into a topic of their choice. Supported by an online rubric and resources, students complete their investigation as an individual, small group or whole class.
The National Maths Talent Quest accepts the top entries from states and territories across Australia. For those states that don’t have a local competition, schools are welcome to enter their student’s investigations through the Mathematical Association of Victoria’s competition.
