CAT Reloaded

2021 / COMPETITION / OPEN

Challenge yourself with the Computational and Algorithmic Thinking competition content but sit online in your own time. CAT Reloaded offers unique three stage tasks that encourage you to develop informal algorithms and apply them to test data of increasing size or complexity. CAT Reloaded is not a part of the official competition but gives you an opportunity to test your skills in a more relaxed setting.

You’ll receive a digital participation certificate with a raw score.

In-school competitions and programs

Our core passion is finding new and stimulating ways to help young Australians - like you - become creative problem solvers! And we believe that enjoying the challenge of maths is the most effective way to get them there.

We run heaps of maths-based competitions and programs in schools, so if you're interested, ask your teacher about how you can participate.
