What is the Maths Teams Challenge?

The Maths Teams Challenge is a problem solving competition held every year at a number of locations in Southeast Queensland.

A Maths Teams Challenge, run somewhat differently, is also held at Glenmore State High School in Rockhampton. This page is about the SE Qld version.

In the SE Qld version, schools send teams of 5 students to the competition.

The teams then compete with others in a Team event and a Relay event.

There are four divisions: Years 5-6, Years 7-8, Years 9-10 and Years 11-12.

Question Sets   -   Over 2000 Maths Problems for Years 5 to 12

Questions from the Maths Teams Challenge papers provide excellent material for teaching and practising mathematical problem solving.

The questions can be used individually or the papers can be used to run Maths Teams Challenge style competitions within classrooms or schools.

Question sets from past years can be downloaded using the links below.

More recent sets are in Word format. These need to be downloaded and opened in Word to display properly. Earlier sets tend to be in pdf format. Some of the Relay sets have been rearranged from the original order to make them easier to copy and cut up ready for competition use. These sets start with Question 20 rather than Question 1.

Getting Involved in the Competition

Currently the Maths Teams Challenge is held at St Ursula's College, Toowoomba (event organiser: Stephen Broderick, sjb@st-ursula.qld.edu.au), at Moreton

Bay College in Brisbane (event organiser:            ) and at Canterbury College in Logan (event organiser: Jason Baber, j.baber@canterbury.qld.edu.au).

If your school has not competed, but would like to, contact one of these people.

Alternatively, particularly if you are not near any of these centres, you might consider hosting a competition at your school.

Stephen Broderick of St Ursula's College, Toowoomba (sjb@st-ursula.qld.edu.au) and Bob Nelder write the question papers for the competition each year

and provide them to host schools. It is customary, in exchange, to give a small donation to the Grace House charity in Cambodia sponsored by St Ursula's.

Details of how the competition works and instructions for the hosting the competition are available by clicking the links below and any of the local

competition organisers can be contacted for further information.
