The College will celebrate Mathematics Week from July 24th-28th . As in the previous years, the whole week is full of different activities that will provide opportunities for each student to enjoy the many applications of Mathematics in their daily lives. Each student is encouraged to enter at least one of the activities set for the week. The theme for this year’s Maths Week is : Mathematics is Fun!
Some activities lined up for the celebration include the traditional Bake a cake/cupcake contest, Family Homework Sheet and the Song and Poem Contest. We will also have a Treasure Hunt during lunch time and a Brain Teaser competition at the beginning of each Maths lessons. We will have the Maths Problem Solving Challenge for all Years 7-10 classes in the hall where each group of each year level will compete. The group that will generate the most number of points will win the competition.
Also this week, the Australian Mathematics Competition will take place on Thursday, Periods 3 and 4. There are 25 multiple choice questions, each requiring a single answer, followed by 5 questions requiring whole number answers. The questions get harder as you work through the paper: you do not have to attempt every question but you can always try! NO CALCULATORS are allowed. You need to bring only a B or 2B pencil and an eraser.
STRESS DOWN DAY
Stress Down Day is a fun and easy initiative to reduce stress and raise vital funds for Lifeline. Research shows that 90% of Australians need to stress less - with 74% of people reported being stressed from work. Year 11 Well Being Committee conducted workshops for Year 7 to destigmatise Mental Health and look at reducing stress and anxiety. Total funds raised today were $875.00. Great work MCC!
