Maths Talent Question MTQ

The Maths Talent Quest is organised by the Student Activities Committee at The MAV and is open to all primary and secondary school students. It is a competition which aims to promote an interest in mathematics and to foster a positive attitude amongst students, teachers and parents alike. The focus of the Maths Talent Quest is on the process of mathematical investigations. Looking at real-life situations and finding that maths is everywhere helps capture the imagination of all involved.

The Maths Talent Quest allows students to investigate mathematics on an individual, group or class basis with the chance to have fun, see mathematics in real life situations and receive recognition in the process
