Cleopatra (Grade 9) recently completed the second round of the Junior South African Math Olympiad! Here’s what she had to say about the experience:
“Being part of the South African Math Olympiad has been a great opportunity. I didn’t think I would even make it to the second round so I was super excited to make it – it meant more challenging problems and I was very eager for that. The questions were intense and at times frustrating, but it was the best experience. I had never seen such creative maths questions before! It required me to think out of the box and use calculations that I have never even tried my whole life.
And that is why it was so fun!”
