Some of the regions brightest young maths minds have crunched the numbers and pitted their numerical skills against each other in the annual regional maths challenge day.
Talented mathematicians from Woady Yaloak, Buninyong, Delacombe, Sebastopol, Dana Street and Lal Lal primary schools met at Buninyong on Friday for a day of maths challenges.
Twenty-two teams of four competed against each other, with pupils from Woady Yaloak’s Snake Valley campus emerging as the winners after a day full of sums, practical challenges, activities and a maths relay.
Preparations for the maths challenge day began early with each team having to design and build a robot before the competition, which they had to bring with them for judging at Buninyong Primary School.
“These are all high-achieving maths students so the idea behind the day is to bring those like-minded maths kids together and challenge them, and also to showcase how important maths is,” said Woady Yaloak PS Snake Valley campus head Stephen Cox.
