School Mathematics Competition

I am responsible for the Junior Division (years 7 and 8) of The University of Melbourne School Mathematics Competition.

The previous competition was held on the first of May, 2019, followed by an award ceremony on the 12th of October.

Interested in participating in the next competition (to be held on Wednesday the 5th of May, 2021)?
Then test you skills by computing the sum (no calculators allowed!)

1−2+3−4+···+97−98+99

Possible answers are: 0, 1, 49, 50, 51, None of these.


Got a taste for it?
Then you may want to try the questions from 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 or 2019. Good luck.
