Have Sum Fun LIVE is an exciting mathematics initiative that uses a quiz-night format. Teams of six students race against the clock to solve four intense rounds of eight challenging problems. The competition is offered to regional and remote schools only in WA and interstate schools, and is broadcasted live via Zoom.

There is a school trophy for the winning team, individual trophies for the winning team members, and prizes for members of the three runner-up teams with place-getter certificates for all these six team members. All other students receive participation certificates.

HSF LIVE Directions

  • Schools entering from WA must be regional or remote (as classified on My Schools website)
  • Schools who enter HSF F2F are not eligible to enter HSF Live
  • Teams must be a maximum of three (3) students at the higher year level

Where can we take part in Have Sum Fun LIVE?
If there are clusters schools you coordinate with, schools can have a multi-school venue, much like the larger metropolitan competitions, otherwise, each school can host teams in the comfort of their own classrooms.

What do we need?
All your classroom/hall will need is a webcam/camera set via the Zoom call to provide a live stream of your participants for the competition. MAWA will send all question papers and competition materials to the teacher coordinator.

  • Students need to bring pens, pencils, paper.
  • Calculators or smart watches are not permitted.
  • Students are not permitted to use mobile phones during the competition, any breaches of this will result in school disqualification.

How will it work?
MAWA will run the timings of the rounds, share the answers for year competition and each round on the stream.
All you will need to do is send a photo of each team’s question papers at the end of each round, for MAWA to mark and enter into a live scoreboard to display after each round. The Years 7-8 competition is run separately to the Years 9-10 competition, through a different zoom account.
