QMAT maths quiz


​Three boys represented NRSHS in the QAMT Regional Year 7/8 Maths Quiz and placed tied third (sharing with Glenmore State High). The school was represented by Mitchell Thompson (Yr 8), Alex Somerfield (Yr 8) and Daniel Sanderson (Yr 7). The boys worked very hard to face off against the other nine teams from schools across the region.

First and second place went to Rockhampton Grammar and Moura State High respectively. The teams of three had to compete across five different rounds of competition: Estimation, Fast Response, Problem Solving, Short Answer and General Knowledge round.

Many of the questions were very challenging and gave the teachers and parents in attendance a run for their money. Can you work out how many letters a day a company send spending $2000 a year in under 30 seconds?
