Have Sum Fun Mathematics Competition

Have Sum Fun Mathematics Competition

 

Friday 23th October saw six intrepid Rossmoyne teams compete at the annual (albeit rather belated) Have Sum Fun maths problem-solving competition.  The Year 7s and 8s descended upon Trinity College while the Year 9s and 10s bravely ventured into the lion’s den to take on perpetual rival, All Saints College.

As promised by the competition name, “sum fun” was had by all! It was a closely run race throughout the four rounds and final placings came down to the tie-breaker question.

Congratulations to the following teams:

  • The Raptors for placing 3rd in the Junior category, scoring 29/32 points (same as the first two teams but lost one point on the tiebreaker).
  • The Rumble for placing 4th in the Junior category, scoring 28/32 points and beating the next team on the tie-breaker.
  • The Sabres for placing 3rd in the Intermediate category.

Thank you to all competitors for being proud representatives of Rossmoyne SHS.  We will continue to pursue our ultimate goal of beating the All Saints teams!

And thank you to Mr Tan, Ms Robinson, Ms Fraser-Jones and Mr Rudland for supporting and encouraging our teams on the night.
