AMESA 2017 Mental Maths Competition Results

The 2017 National AMESA saw sunny skies and great beach days in the beautiful city of Port Elizabeth. Along with getting a chance to play in the sand and drink in the warmth of the sun, teachers also came together to share their passion and ideas in mathematics education in South Africa. 

 

The week was filled to the brim with international plenary speakers, teachers sharing their wisdom gained in the classroom and companies who believe that making maths education in South Africa a priority will brighten the future of our beautiful country. There was even time for a mentally stimulating competition!

 

 Every year, Seartec challenges teachers to better their mental maths skills and times by doing a mental maths quiz on the Sharp EL-W535HTB. The person who get the fastest time to 100% walks away with a big prize! This year we gave the winners forty calculators each to take back to their schools! 

 

Tied in fifth place, at 59 seconds were Mankatji Mamookli from Safahone Primary and Meriam Kganyano from Helene Franz. In forth place, with 51 seconds, was Priscilla Motsoetse from Makgofe School. One second ahead of Priscilla was Ntema Moreki from Saint Pauls Primary in third place. Martha Mashoa completed the drill in 37 seconds and came second! She walks away with 20 EL-W535SAB and 20 EL-W506 Sharp scientific calculators for her school. And of course, our (now) three time champion, Thabo Makgolo, managed to complete the drill in just 28 seconds! He receives 20 S25 Junior scientific Quiz calculators as well as 20 of the brand new EL-W535SAB calculators!
