Junior Logic 2017

On the morning of Saturday 22nd April, British International School, HCMC, were proud to host the 2017 Junior Saigon Logic Competition in the APS Auditorium.

  • Junior Maths Logic 2017
  • Junior Maths Logic 2017 2
  • Junior Maths Logic 2017 4
  • Junior Maths Logic 2017 1

In a change to previous competitions, this was coordinated by our Year 12 Student Maths Leaders who were ably assisted by an army of Year 10 volunteers. Five schools including BIS took part in the event which was open to students from Years 7 to 9. The morning was spilt into four distinct rounds: Individual, Creative, Tangram and Relay, all of which were designed to test the students’ logic and problem solving skills.

BIS HCMC entered 3 teams who performed very well. BIS2 managed to finish in thrid out of a total of 14 teams.

The 25 students, from Years 10 and 12, should be very proud of their professionalism and organisational performance during the morning and we hope they have learned some valuable skills along the way, especially the art of delegation!

It was great to see so many students from across the city enjoying themselves at the competition and we look forward to welcoming everyone back next year.

Below are a few sample questions from the competition, try them if you dare!

 

1) There are five books A, B, C, D and E placed on a table. If A is placed below E, C is placed above D, B is placed below A and D is placed above E, then which of the following books touches the surface of the table? 

A.            A

B.            B

C.            C

D.            D

E.            E

 

2) A boy and a girl are sitting on the porch.  "I'm a boy," says the child with black hair.  "I'm a girl," says the child with red hair.

If at least one of them is lying, who is which?

 

3) A rope burns non-uniformly for exactly one hour.  How do you measure 45 minutes, given two such ropes?
