I am delighted to let you know that two of our entries have been selected for the National MTQ. Like last year, we are the only secondary school in Victoria to have two finalists! Best Year 8 in Victoria: Ashleigh Dowling for her investigation titled ‘The Tesseract’ including a model. Best Year 9 in Victoria: Eddie Yu for his story ‘Mathematical Thinking and it’s Limits’ including circle theorems and logic puzzles. 12 Tintern students entered the State MTQ. The process started early in Term 1 and the students have worked hard independently or in teams to investigate a mathematical project of their choosing. It is an excellent learning opportunity and great practice for IB, which requires students to do a mathematical project.
