What teachers and students think
Maths Challenge will be held for 3 to 4 weeks between March and June
School results must be submitted by Friday 23 June 2023
Cost per student: Primary A$20.00 / Secondary A$27.50 (Australia and New Zealand)
Maths Challenge is designed for students in years 3–10. We supply all study materials. Teachers receive a sample letter to parents, student problems, a director’s handbook and a teacher guide including extension problems and marking schemes.
There are different problem sets for primary students in years 3–4 and those in years 5–6. Primary students can attempt four problems individually or in groups of up to three students registered for the Challenge.
There are also different problem sets for secondary students in years 7–8 and those in years 9–10. Secondary students can attempt six problems individually or with another student also registered for the Challenge.
Each problem has several parts and may take some time to solve. Students must individually write up their own solutions for each problem.
Allow one class (or equivalent time) per week to support students and monitor their progress. Students may need at least another 1–2 hours of study time per week. Teachers can mark the solutions (about 20 minutes per paper) or AMT can do the marking for you at an additional cost per student.
On completion, all students will receive a certificate based on their performance.
