Mathletics competition is about the application of Math to solve everyday engineering problems. The questions reflect the grades 5 to 8 primary school math curriculum. Our AMD Mathletics competition was held on Saturday November 16 at Sir William Mulock Secondary School. The event started promptly at 1 PM with opening remarks from Mr. I-Cheng Chen, Engineering Fellow at AMD.

Ninety young and bright students from York Region Primary Schools participated in this year’s competition. They individually solved engineering problems by applying their math skills and providing their numeric and multiple choice answers with wireless clickers. The competition had three parts, Round 1, AMD Challenge and Round 2. AMD Challenge questions were related to Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) technology from AMD. The grand prize included a laptop with an AMD APU processor. There were other prizes for the top three Junior and Senior Level competitors.

See what the hype is all about!

These are clips from this year's FIRST Robotics competition where secondary school students build robots that perform specific tasks and then take them to an arena to compete, all while practicing teamwork, meeting students from different schools which share similar interests and having fun!

(If you haven't guessed it already, this year's tournament is to have the robot shoot frisbees to targets all while climbing an obstacle for extra points!)
