On Saturday 22 April, 18 dedicated mathematicians from Y9-Y11 represented Discovery College at the Inter Schools Mathematic Competition. The competition was organised by the ‘Joint School Mathematics Society’ and was hosted by Leung Kau Kui College. DC student leaders coordinated the enrollment in the event, which lead to a total of 4 teams, consisting of 2 seniors and 2 juniors, as well as 2 solo contestants.
One of the most challenging parts of the day was that all participants needed to wake up and be in action at dawn. The entire day was spent doing maths, making numerous intriguing discoveries and bonding via our common passion for the vast field. The day culminated with the understanding that we were surrounded by friends, rivals and spicy maths. The DC team didn’t place but enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to the competition next year.
