The wonder of maths

Here's a quick brain-stretcher: over a certain period, rain fell on 11 days. A morning rain was always followed by a clear afternoon. An afternoon rain was always preceded by a clear morning. A total of nine mornings and 12 afternoons were clear. How many days had no rain at all? Would the answer be two, three, four or five days?

Such puzzles don't faze students who took part in the South East Asian Mathematics Competition (Semac) in Bangkok. The Hong Kong contestants included six students from the French International School. "First of all, students see that maths can be fun, and devoting a weekend to solving maths problems is not daunting," the teacher says. "Second, the different events help them understand the practical application of mathematics. And last but not the least, students learn from their peers. They are empowered and motivated when they see students their age attack problems they are not able to."
