HSFOL is conducted by the Mathematical Association of Western Australia (MAWA) and is endorsed by the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT). It is a maths quiz of NAPLAN-type problems for both students at home and school year-level teams of four students. HSFOL is designed to foster mathematical problem solving for students in Years 3-10 across Australia.

The competition consists of three rounds of 10 questions, where competitors have one hour to complete each round of questions. Each round is accessible on the HSFOL website for one week, and rounds are a week apart.

Competitors can log on at any time during each set week. However, completion time is important, because in the case of ties for any of the first three places, the winner will be the student at home and school team that took the least time to complete all three rounds. Calculators are permitted, but not mobile devices. The HSFOL competition has to be completed on-line only, and  within the set three weeks. Any variation of this, such as problems with IT etc. are accommodated and scored, but such students at home and teams do not qualify for a prize.

All students will receive a participation certificate, and all place-getters will receive a  MAWA place-getter’s certificate with their prize. All team results are listed in the League Tables. The prize vouchers are as follows. For students at home: First Place = $80, Second Place = $50, and Third Place = $30. For school teams: First Place = 4 x $25, Second Place = 4 x $15, and Third Place = 4 x $10.

Please Note: Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams at each year level, but only one of each school’s two or more teams in that year level can win a prize.

    HSFOL can provide an avenue for students to work like a mathematician; that is, collaboratively and creatively to solve a problem.
