After winning their two qualifying rounds, the team of Quan Nguyen, Garry Chen and Eric Zhang won the state finals of the Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers Year 7/8 Maths Quiz. The students contested the final over Zoom with academics from The University of Queensland and over 20 schools from across the state.
After a difficult start in the estimation and problem-solving rounds, the students looked out of contention with the team from Matthew Flinders Anglican College taking a compelling win. But outstanding mathematical general knowledge from Quan and an excellent performance in the individual round from Garry helped the boys to bridge the gap and complete Churchie’s second state championship in the last three years.
