In Term Two, a number of Year 9 students competed in the annual UQ QAMT Problem Solving Competition. The competition was open to all students in secondary schools in Queensland and students completed three competition papers. 

Each of the papers was two hours long and consisted of questions that required a solution with mathematical justification. In the UQ QAMT Problem Solving Competition, the problems did not require any greater knowledge than that possessed by our students at Somerset, but required a certain amount of ingenuity and thought.

Congratulations to Year 9 students, Advait Naik and Tarun Mutalithas on achieving a High Commendations in the 2022 UQ QAMT Problem Solving Competition. Their results placed them in the top 10 of the State and demonstrate their passion for mathematics.
