This year's FOBISIA Math Competition was unique and different from others. An online competition was introduced that consisted of 2 components – the Individual and a group Video challenge.
The individual challenge consisted of 4 stages, each with 5 questions to complete – Starter, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The starter challenge was to prepare a participant for the following challenges. Each participant had 3 attempts to successfully complete each level. Throughout the competition, we learned so much from the interesting word problems and complex ideas. We truly enjoyed this online challenge and if opportunity were to arise again, we will definitely take part.
