The National Mathematics Summer School (NMSS) is held annually every year. This is a selective camp that caters for students from all over Australian who are in Year 11. It is a two-week â€˜gifted and talentedâ€™ program designed for students who not only enjoy Mathematics but who are also very mathematically able.
Topics range from number theory through to chaos and topology. Selection for NMSS is based on MAV tests designed to find whether you can use what you know mathematically in creative ways to solve unfamiliar problems.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Roger Luo (Year 11) has been invited to participate in National Mathematics Summer School for 2021. Roger sat the selection test in August and was recently notified that he had been offered a place in the â€˜gifted and talentedâ€™ program which is restricted to 75 students nationally. This is a wonderful achievement and due recognition for the work Roger has put into his mathematics at the college. It should be mentioned that Ms Liz Moloney, Rogerâ€™s Teacher, has been supporting and mentoring him throughout this process.
I wish Roger all the very best in the summer program. The summer school program runs from 13 to 20 January 2021.
