Congratulations to participants of Simon Marais Maths Competition 2022

24 Oct 2022

An enthusiastic group of UQ students sat the Simon Marais Competition on Saturday, 15 October 2022. The competition went for 6 hours with the questions being quite challenging: even getting one problem correct is an achievement. If you are interested, you can attempt the questions yourself on Paper A (PDF, 159.8 KB) and Paper B (PDF, 147.2 KB).

This year we had several training sessions for our students prior to the competition. We had quite a few physics and engineering students also participating along with the Maths students.
