A few weeks ago my Mathex team went to Mathex, I was really nervous and so was the rest of my team. In my team was Blake, Mikayla, Natalie and me. We walked into the hall of Wanganui Intermediate and there were lots of people in the grandstands, there was at least 20 schools we went up against. When Mathex started we all started to figure out the questions really quickly and we worked together as a team. We only had 20 minutes to get through 20 questions and the clock stops for the first team to get all 20 right, The team that stopped the clock was Fordell Primary school. We had all tried our best and guess what? We came third!!! We were all super excited and we went up to receive our bronze certificates. We were all really happy because it was the first time Carlton School had ever got a placing at Mathex. My mum said I might be able to get it framed.
