Here, at K12 we provide our students with all the learning they need to achieve the best results possible in this competition. If a child succeeds in this test, they will be honoured with a BH Neumann award. This particular award honours the influence of Professor Bernhard H Neumann AC (1909-2002) who, ‘after his arrival in Australia in 1962, provided outstanding leadership, support and encouragement for mathematics and the teaching of mathematics at all levels.’
