Have Sum Fun Online
Have Sum Fun Online (HSFOL) is conducted by the Mathematical Association of Western Australia (MAWA) and is endorsed by the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT). It is a maths quiz of NAPLAN-type problems for both students at home and school year-level teams of four students. HSFOL is designed to foster mathematical problem solving for students in Years 3-10 across Australia.
The competition consists of three rounds of 10 questions, where competitors have one hour to complete each round of questions. Each round is accessible on the HSFOL website for one week, and rounds are a week apart.
Competitors can log on at any time during each set week. However, completion time is important, because in the case of ties for any of the first three places, the winner will be the student at home and school team that took the least time to complete all three rounds. Calculators are permitted, but not mobile devices. The HSFOL competition has to be completed on-line only, and within the set three weeks. Any variation of this, such as problems with IT etc. are accommodated and scored, but such students at home and teams do not qualify for a prize.
