The focus of the Maths Talent Quest is on the process of mathematical investigations. Open to all primary and secondary students, the Maths Talent Quest aims to promote interest in mathematics and foster positive attitudes amongst students, teachers and parents.
Looking at real life situations and finding that mathematics is everywhere helps capture the imagination of both teachers and students alike. The Maths Talent Quest allows students to investigate mathematics on an individual, group or class basis with the opportunity to have fun exploring mathematics in real life situations. Assessment through a rubric helps to evaluate students’ progression through the process strands.
All MTQ entrants will receive a certificate. Gift vouchers will be awarded to both High Distinction and Distinction winners for each year level at the MTQ Awards Ceremony. The entries that receive a High Distinction at state level are judged separately, one entry from this group forwarded for judging at the National Maths Talent Quest. National Award Winners will also be presented with their prizes at the State MTQ Awards Ceremony.
