Top Students in the 2021 CAT Competition at North Shore
On March 26-27 earlier this year, a cohort of steely-eyed students sat the Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) competition at North Shore Coaching College, Chatswood. Run by the Australian Maths Trust, the one-hour problem solving competition is designed to encourage student curiosity and promote multiple modes of thinking.
All participants enjoyed the challenge of solving real-world problems involving the skills of the future, helping them become more confident as they take on interesting new challenges. We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to all students who challenged themselves with this unique, highly relevant competition. However, four students in particular achieved outstanding results in the CAT competition:
- David in Year 5 (High Distinction)
- Lawrence in Year 5 (High Distinction)
- Raksith in Year 6 (High Distinction), and
- Bright in Year 6, who achieved full marks!
Congratulations to these top performers, and all the prospective programmers, emerging engineers, mathematicians in the making and aspiring all-rounders who sat the CAT competition!
The Computational and Algorithmic Thinking competition will return in early 2022.
