After a 2-year hiatus, the 10th annual Rhodes University Mathematics Experience was held at the Barratt Lecture Theatre complex on the Rhodes campus. About 340 pupils from Makhanda, Bathurst and Gqeberha took part in the event. Despite some stiff competition from Alexander Road High in Gqeberha, our teams from College and DSG put in a sterling effort, securing 8 of the top 9 places.
In the Grade 7 to 8 category, College took the top three positions in flying formation with Felix Jackson taking first place with an impressive 100%, closely followed by Rafael Carrara on 95% and Thomas Rivett-Carnac on 94%.
In the Grade 9 to 10 category Alastair de Kock was placed joint first with Zoe van der Walt from DSG, both of whom scored an impressive 100%, over 15% higher than their nearest rival.
In the Grade 11 to 12 category Zack Swears was placed third overall, Lucy Jewell from DSG second, with top honours this year going to Max Coventry.
Well done to everyone who took part in the event.
