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 May 3, 2017.
If you did really well we may actually have met at the awards ceremony held on Saturday the 14th of October, 2017.

Interested in next year's competition (to be held on Wednesday the 2nd of May, 2018)?
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 or 2017. Good luck.
