Last week our school maths team went to the FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia) Primary Maths Challenge, which was held in Kuala Lumpur.

This is an extremely prestigious Maths competition, where the best Mathematicians in Asia compete to find out who is the best individually, and which school has the best team.

This year, 32 of the top British schools in Asia competed in the competition. It was a fantastic competition with questions, which challenged children to apply their knowledge, solve spatial problems, and then show great team work, inventiveness and creativity to construct a rollercoaster.

The four children who were chosen to represent our school were Addison Zheng, Jacqueline Yang, Jiwon Choi and Razam Sherwani.

Our maths team tackled every round with confidence and worked as a team to solve the many challenges. The children had a fantastic time testing themselves against the very best in Asia.

Jiwon Choi said of the competition: “I really enjoyed trying many different types of maths problems and challenging myself to solve them. My favourite round of the competition was the relay because we could show great teamwork”

Jacqueline Yang said of the competition: “I enjoyed the new ways of doing maths and everything I learnt. It was a great experience. My favourite activity was the lock challenge and our group worked together really well.”

Razam Sherwani said of the competition: “I enjoyed the team games, especially the crack the code challenge. I also enjoyed it because the challenges helped to work out my brain.”

Addison Zheng said of the competition: “I enjoyed the time with my team and enjoyed the challenge even though we didn’t win it. I also enjoyed the trip a lot.”
