At St. Clare’s High School we strive to offer students opportunities to enhance and enrich their education. In Mathematics, as part of this enrichment program, we offer students the opportunity to take part in a series of mathematics competitions and challenges. Many of our mathematics students participate and compete annually in the University of NSW ICAS Mathematics Competition, the Australian Mathematics Challenge, the Australian Mathematics Competition, Enrichment Mathematics and the Australian Intermediate Mathematics Olympiad. These competitions and challenges range in difficulty, providing an opportunity for all students seeking to improve their conceptual understanding and problem solving skills in mathematics.
Stage 4 students are also involved in an extension day ‘Problem-solving and Puzzles Workshop’ where students are challenged as they work in teams to solve problems.
