The Mathematics Learning Area at SIDE strives to activate and encourage opportunities for all our students to become creative problem solvers.

It's "open season" for the 2022 Mathematics Competitions around the globe! Australia kicked off on 19 March with Kangorou sans Frontière (KSF), a French Mathematics competition linked in Australia to the Australian Mathematics Competition. SIDE students from Years 7-12 were invited to be part of this event and over 40 SIDE students accepted the challenge.

KSF has become one of the largest international Mathematics competitions with about 6 million creative problem solvers from around the world participating.

SIDE students achieved notable results. Oliver Tinley, a Year 11 at Narrogin Senior High School had an excellent result, achieving a Distinction Award that places him in the top 20% of all the Year 11 and 12 participants.
