Coastal Maths Challenge done and dusted

Close to 800 learners from 13 coastal schools participated in the first round of the Bank Windhoek Coastal Maths Challenge that took place at schools in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay recently.

The event saw grade 8 to 10 learners from the Swakopmund Secondary and the Walvis Bay Secondary School clusters compete in a mathematics skills challenge consisting of a multiple-choice paper for each grade.
The answer sheets of learners who got more than one-third of the answers correct were submitted to the Walvis Bay and Swakopmund Cluster team leaders, who were tasked to select the 12 best performing learners in each grade to progress to the second round.
The competition exposes learners to problem-solving in a challenging and fun context and motivates teachers and learners to engage in problem-solving activities.
Established in 2014, the annual Bank Windhoek Coastal Maths Challenge is organised by Magret Courtney-Clarke from Orison Educational Services.
The following schools qualified for the second round taking place in June. They will challenge each other in three papers, namely an individual speed test, a multiple-choice test, and a team test.
