MaST Mathletes

E-mail Print PDF

On February 3, Samantha Visva and the Mathletes club organized a mock math competition for many of her grade 12 peers.  The math competition, inspired by a popular scene from the movie Mean Girls starring Lindsay Lohan, required two teams to answer challenging math questions on functions, calculus, data management and more.  With buzzers and calculators, teams worked together to discuss their solutions and provide their answer.  The competition culminated with one last calculus question, which all participants were excited to experience.  The final question and answer in the Mathletes Competition re-created the famous scene where Lindsay Lohan’s character says the famous quote, “The limit does not exist”.  The event was successfully well attended by participants who were engaged and excited in an activity that can only foster the interest and skill in mathematics of a MaST student.

Recently, our Grade 10 students put their math to use in analysing the motion of hovercrafts they had built in their Engineering classes.  Using linear systems, they were able to make accurate predictions about location and time of flight and they had fun while they did it.
