Congratulations to all the students who performed so well in this year's Team Math competition in Rathdown School, Dublin. The questions this year certainly proved challenging right from the very first round but our students persevered and found the problems thought provoking and stimulating with each passing round.
Congratulations to the girls from Mount Anville SC who took the trophy back to Dublin 14 with a score of 11 points from a possible 20.
Well done also to Wesley College who finished in 2nd after a tie-break decider with Belvedere College SJ.
The girls from Mount Anville led the way from the very first round and seemed to improve with each round. The questions certainly challenged all the contestants, and quite a few of the teachers alike!
We wish all of the students the very best over the coming weeks as they do their mock examinations and hope that the Team Math quiz helped in your preparation for these exams.
We would like to particularly thank all the teachers and parents for coming along on the night to lend their support to the students. Thanks also are due to our fantastic hosts on the night, Rathdown School and to all of the maths teachers who helped out in any way.
The teams from Mount Anville and Wesley College will now go forward to the national finals, in Maynooth University on Saturday February 10th and wish them every good fortune in their endeavours.
