Maths Competition in Milan February 2012

Junior International Secondary Mathematics Teachers Federation (ISMTF)Three students from Year 10 and 11 attended the ISMTF International Junior Mathematics Competition in Milan this February. They were Lola Faura Praxedes and Julen Perez Alvarez, two experienced competitors from Year 11 and Sebastian Hernandez Flaño, the youngest team member from Year 10. The competition was fiercely contested over two days with Individual and Team rounds of challenging mathematical problems. 270 students competed, creating 95 teams from countries as far apart as Norway and Tunis. Aloha College held their own among the three other Spanish teams who attended and achieved 65th place in the team event. With an exacting competition schedule and sub-zero temperatures, our Aloha students were only able to catch glimpses of Milan. They were particularly impressed by the beautiful Duomo cathedral illuminated by moonlight and covered in snow. All three students represented Aloha College admirably but Sebastian had the additional achievement of narrowly beating his older team-mates.
