Well done to the girls from Fifth year and Transition who have all done exceptionally well in the Olympiad Maths exam. The girls have all been invited to the Maths enrichment classes in NUIG in January and February.
The Irish Mathematical Olympiad (IrMO) is a national mathematics contest for secondary school students.
The primary aim of the enrichment classes is to cultivate a love and appreciation for mathematics among talented students – this is achieved by giving such students exposure to deeper, more challenging and more interesting mathematical problems than those encountered on the school syllabus. The performance of students in the IrMO is used to identify a team of up to six students who will represent Ireland at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), a prestigious international mathematics competition.
The 2018 IMO competition will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, from 3 – 14 July 2018.
We are all wishing the girls the very best of luck with their enrichment classes.
