The Mathematical Association of Victoria is pleased to announce the opening of the 2017 Maths Talent Quest (MTQ). MTQ is an annual activity aimed at promoting interest in mathematics and fostering positive attitudes amongst students, teachers and parents. The focus of the MTQ is on the process of mathematical investigations and relating mathematics to everyday life.
Who can enter?
Entry is open to individuals, small groups or classes from Prep – 12 and are categorised into year levels from Prep to Year 9 with a combined year 10 -12 level. Each school can entry up to 8 entries per level.
State level prizes are awarded to individual, group and class entries with Credit and Encouragement receivers award certificates and Distinction and High Distinction receiving a gift voucher and certificate. Awards will be given out at our MTQ Awards Ceremony to be held on Thursday 19 October 2017 at La Trobe University. Certain winners will also qualify for the National Maths Talent Quest where winners will also be announced at the MTQ Awards Ceremony.
The MTQ receives hundreds of entries which each need to be judged a minimum of two times. By every school providing a teacher for a minimum of two hours, we can ensure that each entry is judged efficiently and fairly. Judging is a great professional development idea for all involved. Judging will take place from Thursday 24 – Tuesday 29 August 2017 at La Trobe University and we encourage metropolitan and regional schools, independent and student teachers to participate in the judging process.

Do you want to touch base with the Mathematics Educators of the future? Then the Maths Talent Quest (The MTQ) is the sponsorship opportunity for you. In 2016, The Mathematical Association of Victoria received over 580 entries into the competition from both primary and secondary schools across Australia, and had over 1000 students, parents and teachers attend the awards ceremony in October.
The Mathematical Association of Victoria would greatly appreciate your support to enable us to provide the Maths Talent Quest at a reasonable cost to students and to reward their efforts. For more information about the 2017 Maths Talent Quest sponsorship contact Peter Saffin email@example.com.
