Can your students win $6000 in New Zealand's Next Top Engineering Scientist?
This fun and challenging day long competition is for teams of three to four senior students, who have interests in mathematics and science. The 2016 competition will run near the start of term 3, on Saturday the 6th of August. The problem is revealed at 9am in the morning and students work in their teams to provide a solution by 6pm of that day. First prize is $6,000 plus there are two runner-up prizes of $2,000. For more information and to register your team(s) see the Department of Engineering Science website at the University of Auckland: www.des.auckland.ac.nz/competition Registrations close Friday 29th of July.

This document provides information about how to strengthen partnerships between secondary, tertiary, industry training and employment with better pathways through education at Level 3. Pathways and partnerships will engage and retain more learners by providing:
a greater choice of programmes
improving achievement at Level 3 or equivalent in different contexts
supporting progression to further study and employment.
Abstract: What is the common thread in the following? There are points in the ocean where there is no tidal variation. There are antipodal points on the earth’s surface where both the temperature and the barometric pressure are the same. If you place a sheet of paper on a table then pick it up and crumple and fold it (and even stretch it if you can) without tearing then replace it within the spot where it was then some point on the paper will be back where it was or directly above. You can build a fence through very rugged terrain and still stop your sheep wandering. The answer is topology. Amongst other things I shall explain the links.

The Casio Senior Mathematics Competition is again underway. This is an important competition as it not only allows us to recognise the top Mathematicians but also allows top students, from all regions, to meet and share ideas. The format of the competition is remaining the same as in previous years with a preliminary round, which is 90 minutes long and marked within the school. Results are then forward to the regional markers to allow us to select the top 200 competitors. The papers then forwarded to NZAMT are used to select the 15 finalists. Both rounds consist of a written paper prepared by Examiners appointed by NZAMT.
