Numeracy is a fundamental skill that students at MLFNS-Wuhan practice on a daily basis. Many students have excellent computational skills, as well as problem-solving abilities. In mid-November, MLFNS-Wuhan offered students a chance to participate in the Canadian Intermediate Mathematics Competition, hosted through the University of Waterloo
The test is intended for students in Grade 9 and Grade 10, but we had students in Grade 5 through Grade 9 write the exam. Our FNS students wanted the opportunity to demonstrate higher-level thinking and to challenge themselves. Results will be released later in 2020, but we are very proud of all of our participants! In Spring 2020, MLFNS-Wuhan students will participate in further mathematics competitions, including the Gauss (G7, G8) and Fryer (G9) contests.
