Bran­don makes maths count

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

EACH year since Year 6, Bran­don Schulte has en­tered the Univer­sity of NSW Math­e­mat­ics com­pe­ti­tion.

And each year he has achieved a dis­tinc­tion.

This year was no dif­fer­ent. The re­sult placed the Mun­dub­bera State School stu­dent in the top 2% in Queens­land.

The 60-minute test cov­ers all ar­eas of math­e­mat­ics.

While en­joy­ing maths gen­er­ally, Bran­don’s favourite is al­ge­bra, which he finds chal­leng­ing.

“The last five ques­tions were really hard. They were noth­ing like the rest of the test,” Bran­don said.

Other stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated in the con­test – Caitlin Wag­ner, Bri­anna and Sam Whi­taker, Chan­nah Leder­hose, So­phie Zipf and Kiana Watt – also achieved im­pres­sive re­sults.
