Stacey Tian of Year 13 is one of the top 12 students from throughout the country selected for the New Zealand Mathematics Olympiad Training squad. The final team of six students will represent NZ in Rio de Janeiro in July. Stacey took part in a training camp in January and we wish her well as she prepares for further competition. The final selection will be announced in April.
Stacey says a highlight of the camp was working with other talented mathematicians in order to learn from them and experience their way of working through a mathematical problem. Being taught by world-class mathematicians was also an enlightening experience as it exposed her to a new level of maths.
