MATHEX 2019September 20, 2019
Four teams from OTHC participated in the annual Mathex competition held recently at the ASB Showground in Greenlane. Over a 100 teams from every Auckland secondary school competed in this prestigious mathematical event. Mathex is a competition where teams contest against each other to solve as many algebraic equations as possible, under a time limit of one hour. Each team consists of four students, one of who is a runner whose job is to race to the judges to receive the equation and give their answer in return. Many weeks prior to the competition, saw the OTHC teams committing their lunch times, to work hard at mastering their mathematical skills which all paid off as both teams were well placed in the final count. Special thanks to Mr Kumar and the Maths Department for making this experience happen and for giving up their time to prepare the teams so well.
