In the second term, all the IP Phase children wrote the South African Mathematics Challenge (SAMC), in which 70 000 learners from over 300 schools participate each year. Each question is a challenging question and any question the students get right, is an achievement in itself. Only the students who got more than 60% in the first round, went through to the second round. Certificates were awarded to all students who achieved 55% and more. To receive a gold certificate, one had to achieve 85% or more. We are very proud of Daniel van Zyl who got 90%. The students had a choice of working by themselves or in a group of two. 6 students received silver certificates and 4 students received bronze certificates.
