SINGAPORE MATHEMATICAL MODELLING FORUM & CHALLENGE (SMMFC) 2014

The Mathematics Department had participated in the Singapore Mathematical Modelling Forum & Challenge (SMMFC) 2014 which was jointly organized by Raffles Girls’ School and Ngee Ann Secondary School. The programme was conducted over 2 half days and 2 full-days in term 3 of semester 2.

Mathematical Modelling (MM) is an innovative way of learning, where students translate real-world problems into Mathematics problem and solve them.

The objectives of SMMFC are:

  • to equip students with 21st century skills in critical and inventive thinking as well as information and communication skills, and
  • to provide students with the opportunity to experience and apply the Mathematical Modelling process in real-world situations.

The participants from various schools (locals & overseas) were grouped together within the same teams and they were tasked to solve mathematical modelling (MM) problems together. This year, our school selected 3 lower sec students and 2 upper sec students to participate in the challenge. They are:

Lower Sec Category
2E - Chloe Chia Rui Yi
2E - Goh Yong Jing
2E - Hoo Josiah John

Upper Sec Category
3H - Paul Yong Shao En
3J - James Sastrawan

E6 Cluster Alge-Miner Mathematics Competition 2014

This year, St Hilda’s Secondary School organised the annual E6 Cluster Alge-Miner Mathematics Competition. Our school was represented by 8 Secondary 2 students from the Normal Academic and Normal Technical stream; Celeste Tan, Ow Jie Qing, Josen Cheang and Joel Lee from Secondary 2B together with Teo Gek Hua, Valerie Goh, Tan Zong Wei and Koh Ming Xuan from Secondary 2A. Our school’s opponents were namely Tampines Secondary School, Pasir Ris Secondary School, East View Secondary School and Ngee Ann Secondary School.

It was a nerve-wrecking experience as the students competed against the 6 other teams. As the competition progressed, the students worked even closer as a team, helping one another by discussing their answers or pointing out various strategies that they could use in overcoming their difficulties in completing the tasks. During the 3rd round, the boys team came up with an ingenious plan to choose the Alge-Ores. They all chose the exact same ones and that ensured that our team received the highest gems in that round! With the gems accumulated by our school, we emerged 2nd overall.

Looking back, it was a great experience for the students to get to know one another and to also learn Algebra in a more interesting manner.
