Final Preparations for 2012

Not long to go now. The Methanex Maths Spectacular gets under way in less than 2 weeks. Please check the following points to make sure your entries are ready to go. We have over 80 teams registered to take part in the quiz nights.

  1. Complete registration by Thursday 26th July: Registration fees must be paid before Friday 27th July 2012 so that your students will be eligible for prizes and are able to compete in the quiz evenings.
  2. Complete and attach labels: Please make sure the correct labels (colour and year level) are completed and firmly attached to each exhibit. Exhibits without labels will not be judged.
  3. Put Velcro hooks on flat entries: Please stick Velcro hooks (not loops) on each corner of the back of flat entries. This allows them to be attached to the display boards.
  4. Count of exhibits in each category: Please use the link below and print and complete the sheet with the number of exhibits in each category and year level.  Deliver with your exhibits on Monday.
