MTQ is an annual activity aimed at promoting interest in mathematics and fostering positive attitudes amongst students, teachers and parents. The focus of the MTQ is on the process of mathematical investigations and relating mathematics to everyday life.

The Maths Talent Quest is an open-ended mathematical investigation with your choice of topic. Students should aim to choose an original and novel concept, focusing on interesting, real-world problems. Projects can be in the form of an investigation, creative writing, poster or booklet, or media/technology (e.g. computer program).

Students may enter as an individual, a group (with a maximum of six participants), or as a class. Each school can enter up to 6 entries, per level, per category. State level prizes are awarded to individual, group and class entries with Credit and Encouragement receivers award certificates and Distinction and High Distinction receiving a gift voucher and certificate.
