The FOBISIA Primary Maths Competition is one of the highlights of the school calendar as it is an extremely prestigious Maths competition, in which the best Mathematicians in Asia compete to find the best individual mathematician and the best school team.
This year’s competition will be held at the British School of Guangzhou, China. The competition will be held on Friday 11 March and Saturday 12 March, and the children will be competing against 120 children from 30 international schools across Asia. On Friday the children take part in the Individual Challenge and on Saturday the teams compete to find out which school has the best mathematical team. The questions are extremely challenging and designed to really stretch these very good mathematicians. In order to win the competition children will need to be able to apply their knowledge, solve logic and spatial problems, be able to explain their thinking in the investigation round, and then show great team work and ingenuity to create a winning construction.
The children are very excited about this challenge and are looking forward to representing the British School of Beijing, Sanlitun.
