The Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) is a national non-profit organization whose purpose is to enrich the teaching and learning of mathematics for students of all standards. AMT holds mathematics and informatics competitions, administer enrichment activities, conducts workshops for students and teachers, and publishes books on mathematical enrichment for Australian and international students. The AMT is based at the University of Canberra with representatives on our board from the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers, Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Mathematical Society.
The Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) competition focuses on the skills behind computer programming and algorithm design, but does not require any specific knowledge of programming or programming languages. There are 9 questions to be completed in one hour.
AMT Committee and ASDAN China (ASDAN Academy) have cooperated to bring the CAT to China from 2017. Students could improve their logic thinking though this competition. About 3000 Students from 735 international and key middle schools have participated in it in 2020, and many of them have achieved perfect scores.
