Last week we received the results of the Kangaroo Mathematics Competition, which took place on March 17. Every student who participated received a small prize for the hard work of solving tough mathematical problems under time pressure.
Eight students received an extra prize because their results were in the top 5% of over 670 000 students participating from German schools. This was the highest placement H.I.S. has ever had in the Kangaroo competition to date. Prize winners pictured here: Noah (grade 3), Daniel (grade 4), Ella (grade 6), Martin (grade 8), Adrian and Affan (grade 10). Further prize winners not pictured here: Sywon (grade 7) and Bennet (grade 8). Congratulations go to all participants!
Another mathematics competition first for H.I.S. happened at the end of April in the middle school competition of the International Schools Mathematics Teachers Federation. One of our grade 8 teams ranked in 10th place, the first time any H.I.S. team has made the top 20. Congratulations to Luna, Bennet and Martin for their excellent results.
Pictured here are all the ISMTF competition participants. In the middle school competition, H.I.S. was represented by Dunsin, Maahi, Chee, Oscar, Sywon (not pictured), Thijs, Luna, Bennet (not pictured), Mattia and Martin. The junior team was Zara, Ceren, Luisa and Saadhvi. The senior team was Ethan, Daksh and Jesse. This year’s competitions were online but we are hoping students will be able to travel again next year.
