ARE YOUR STUDENTS READY FOR A CHALLENGE?
Enrol your class in the Maths Challenge for Young Australians to encourage your students to strive for excellence and reach their full potential in mathematics.
The MCYA Challenge Stage is a three-week program, for students in years 3 to 10, held in the classroom between March and the end of June.
Registrations are now open for the Challenge Stage and will be accepted up until Friday 23 May 2014. This date is intended to allow sufficient time for the distribution of papers, conducting the challenge in the classroom and returning results to the Australian Mathematics Trust by Monday 30 June.
New in 2014
Students can start the mathematics adventures sooner through the introduction of a new level for the 2014 Maths Challenge for Young Australians (MCYA), Challenge Stage. The new level, Middle Primary, is aimed at students in Year 3 and 4 and students in Years 5, 6 or 7 change to Upper Primary.
Also, students taking the Junior and Intermediate Challenge can now work on ALL problems with a partner also participating in the Challenge.
