CAT Computational Algorithmic Competition

By Amanda Fraser | Posted: Monday July 11, 2022

In early May, 34 Logan Park Students participated in the Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) Competition.

Run by the Australian Maths Trust, the one-hour problem solving competition is designed to encourage student curiosity and promote multiple modes of thinking and has a mixture of multiple-choice and integer answers and incorporates unique ‘three-stage tasks’ that encourage students to develop informal algorithms and apply them to test data of increasing size or complexity.

All participants enjoyed the challenge of solving real-world problems involving the skills of the future, helping them become more confident as they take on interesting new challenges.

Congratulations to the following students who achieved outstanding results:
