Let's Do Maths

The CIT Department of Mathematics runs an annual event for all CIT students, THE LEE FIELDS MEDAL --- CIT MATHS CHALLENGE to decide which currently-registered CIT student is the best mathematician on campus. The Department of Mathematics puts together a challenging paper of ten questions in which CIT Students put their mathematical prowess against the best mathematicians in CIT. The questions are based on mathematics no more advanced that what appears in the Leaving Certificate Ordinary Level syllabus... but this doesn't mean that the questions are easy!!
