Impressive numbers by King’s mathletes at Auckland Math Olympiad

Math Olympiad

On Saturday 13 May, 14 students from King's College participated in the Auckland Math Olympiad competition, with some impressive results.

May Meng, Deputy Head of the Maths Department, accompanied the team and helped out with the marking of the competition.

The competition comprised of a two-hour paper with a total of ten questions. Despite the mathematical difficulty and fierce competition, among 160 students from 17 schools, King's students managed to prove their mathematical talents and claim monetary prizes.

In the junior division, Year 10 students Nathaniel Masfen-Yen (Greenbank) and Jonathan Leung (Major) placed 15th and sixth, respectively. Bon-Nyeong Goo (Year 13, Marsden) placed 11th in the senior division and Fiona Leng (Year 11, Taylor) placed an exceptional fifth. 

“All of our mathletes performed impressively in the competition and should be proud of their efforts,” says Ms. Meng.
