Mathematics Success
by Bernadette Shaw - Thursday, 22 August 2019, 3:37 PM
 


Burnside High School student Ethan Ng has claimed the title as the top New Zealand High School mathematician.

Ethan won the final of the Victoria University New Zealand Senior Mathematics competition which took place in Wellington last Friday. This competition is open to all New Zealand High School students. 1200 students sat a preliminary paper in May, with the top 15 students nationally qualifying for the final. In 2018 Ethan made the final and finished runner-up. This year he went one better claiming the title.

This is a remarkable achievement as Ethan is only 14 years of age, and all the other finalists were aged 17 or 18. Ethan is currently studying Cambridge A Level Mathematics at Burnside High School, and is looking to study a double degree in Mathematics and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Canterbury in 2020.
