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. Through this Competition, some outstanding Mathematics students have been identified and, 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 12 questions for each of the three divisions (Junior - Years 7 & 8; Intermediate - Years 9 & 10; Senior - Years 11 & 12).
