Recently Northcross hosted its annual Mathex competition – the largest number of students ever to compete with 86 teams from across the school. It was a challenging competition this year but our students showed true Northcross perseverance and determination.
The top 4 teams from each year level went on to represent Northcross at the North Shore Mathex the following day, where 344 students in 86 teams raced to be named North Shore champions. In the Year 7 competition one of talented teams took out first place getting to the maximum score of 100 with time to spare.
The Year 8 competition was a true battle with a number of teams making the 100 points and our Northcross team gaining 3rd place.
Our teams will go on to the Auckland Casio Mathex competition in August. Good luck to them.
