Melville Intermediate - Otumoetai Intermediate Maths 2011

On Thursday 29th of September 2011three year seven students from Melville Intermediate School who were Jarom Bohm, Trey Dixion and Lee Farrar-Johnson went to Tauranga to Otumoetai Intermediate to compete in their annual Maths competition.  We were choosen to go for our amazing test scores and talents in Maths. When we arrived at the Intermediate at 5:30pm we saw many other schools there already.  There were approximatley 20 schools there which is a lot because there were both 'a' and 'b' teams for some schools.  When we went inside the hall at 6:00pm there were desks spread out all over the place, me and the other Year 7 students found our desk and sat down.  After a while the co-ordinator for Baymaths stood up and told us we would be doing an individual test that would take ten minutes.  After that we did a team challenge that lasted for twenty minutes and a timed challenge that had one question every three minutes.  When we were at the last question, I can't recall what it was but after thirty seconds we called out 195 which happened to be the answer.  At the prize giving Berkley took home the award for Y7s and Y8s among some other trophies and we came 15th out of about 30 teams but that's still pretty good.  At 8:30pm we left to drive back to Hamilton, on the way our parents stopped and brough us Wendy's but it was still a long trip and we didn't get back until 10:30pm
