Students from Moruya, Broulee, Bodalla, Mogo and St Marys Public schools will be invited to come to the high school for Maths activities and fun!
The day consists of over 100 students, with 25 teams from 9 schools on the South Coast, both public and private. Schools compete in a day of quizzes, problem solving exercises and construction activities.
This competition has been running since 1978 and now includes over 40 countries.
It is open to students of all abilities and provides feedback and enrichment to schools and participants.
It develops problem solving and critical thinking skills in unfamiliar problems under exam conditions. Students solve 30 problems in 75 minutes.
The problems get progressively more difficult, so that they become challenging for the most gifted students.
At Moruya High School, we encourage all students to participate and each year approximately 100 students, from years 7 to Year 12, volunteer
to sit a very challenging competition.
All students who participate will receive a certificate acknowledging their efforts.
In previous years we have had a number of students, across all years achieve credits and distinctions and we commend all students who participate.
CAT (Computational and Algorithmic Thinking) Competition
Students are also encouraged to sit for this competition. This is a 1 hour problem solving activitiy which seeks to identify computer programming potential.
Students are encouraged to develop algorithms and apply them to test data.
