Outstanding Mathematical Success

11 mei 2017

This year some of our top mathematicians from Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 were entered into the prestigious International Singapore Maths Competition (ISMC) for the first time. 

  • ISMC

Yesterday we got some wonderful news; our talented team were successful in gaining:  

  • 2X Gold awards;
  • 4X Silver awards
  • 4X Bronze awards

We encouraged them to ‘Be Ambitious’ and they certainly were!  They are a real credit to their teachers, their parents and of course themselves, as well as being role models for others!

To put this achievement into context, over 2000 children took part in the International Singapore Maths Competition from as many as 24 countries.  Each child in the team sat the 90 minute paper designed for their particular age group here in school; they were then submitted to be marked by the organisers and subsequently the results published.

Our results can be checked out on the ISMC website . However, a special mention must go to our two top scorers:

  • Daniel Saifuden (Year 4) who came 18 out of 930 children in his age group.
  • Naho Sasaki (Year 5) who came 33 out of 817 in her age group.

This is the evidence that our approach to education through encouraging children to ‘Be Ambitious’ is a successful one that ensures academic success.  These outstanding results are a testament to our philosophy and practice.  Moreover the children were relaxed, confident and motivated when undertaking the challenge, relishing the opportunity and keen to do well.  No pressure was there.

So….are you as clever as a BISS student?  Here are a couple for you to try!

An easy one!

How many hours are there altogether in the first 6 months of 2017?

And a harder one!

Ted has thrice as many gummy bears as Esther.

He gave 189 gummy bears to Esther.

Esther then gave one third of her gummy bears to her sisters.

Now Esther has the same number of gummy bears as Ted.

How many gummy bears does Esther have in the end?

Go on – ‘Be Ambitious’!!
