On Saturday 12th October, Year 8 student, Owen Parris attended a ceremony at the University of Melbourne to receive his 'Outstanding Award' in
The University of Melbourne/ACEMS - School Mathematics Competition.
Owen received a certificate and a $60 voucher and was one of only 24 students throughout the state to achieve this award, (between 3000 to 5000 students enter the competition).
This competition attempts to identify, reward and encourage mathematical talent amongst school populations. Guest speakers spoke of how interesting and rewarding the work they do is, from working out the sequence of traffic lights to modelling probabilities with different coloured ping pong balls.
Congratulations Owen, well done.
