MAT Problem Solving Competition

For more than 40 years, the Mathematical Association of Tasmania has conducted the MAT Problem Solving Competition for Tasmanian students in Years 7 to 12. In 2018, we are thrilled to extend the competition to students in Years 5 and 6! Through this Competition, some outstanding Mathematics students have been identified. For other students, the competition has sparked an interest in Mathematics. The event consists of a set of mathematical problems which aim to test the student’s logic. There are normally 10 - 12 questions for each of the four divisions (Primary - Years 5 & 6; Junior Secondary - Years 7 & 8; Upper Secondary - Years 9 & 10; Senior Secondary - Years 11 & 12) which are undertaken within a two-hour time-frame.
