    DCIS Proms 2016

Dover Court students compete in Nord Anglia Global Maths Challenges

05 November 2015

Are you smarter than a DCIS secondary student? (a question from the Junior Challenge):

Andrew receives $2 from his grandfather for each test he passes. If Andrew fails, he pays his grandfather $2.50. Andrew has made $14.00 so far this year by passing three times as many tests as he has failed. How many tests has Andrew taken so far this year?

Last week, fifty students from across the Secondary School put their logic and maths skills to the test in the first of this year’s Nord Anglia Global Maths Challenges. The students each had 35 minutes to answer 7 tricky questions, and the top eight scores from the school have been submitted to represent DCIS against other Nord Anglia schools. There were some outstanding performers, with special mentions going to Moyuka (Year 10), Tomotaka (Year 7) and Jamil (Year 7) who all scored 6 out of 7, and Jackson and Hinako  (both Year 11) who stepped up to the Senior Challenge which required their knowledge of the Further Pure Mathematics IGCSE.

For more information on the Global Maths Challenge, as well as discussions on this round’s questions and sample papers, please log in to the Global Campus at http://learning.singapore.nordanglia.com/ 

A big well done to everyone who took part; stay tuned for results and future challenges!
