Perth Modern School

Perth Modern School student Micah Sinclair was thrilled to find out he was one of only 22 students Australia-wide who achieved a medal in the 2017 Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC).


Micah, 13, said he loved maths as he enjoyed problem solving and the satisfaction you receive when you correctly work out the answer to a complex problem.


“I had felt reasonably confident after finishing the exam that I had done well but you don’t know how everyone else doing the competition has done,” Micah said.


Micah has been identified as highly gifted in the field of maths and has been attending Curtin University one day a week to participate in their specialist maths program for gifted secondary students.


He will attend a special ceremony in November to receive his medal.
