Welcome to the MatCH’s Online Rally!
!!!!!MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE RULES CAREFULLY!!!!!
After some heavy deliberations, we are happy to announce the winners of the first Online MatCH Rally! Below, you can find the winners and their runner-ups. The top 3 will be contacted by the MatCH for their prize.
You can e-mail the MatCH at email@example.com if you want to know your score or if you want to know a specific solution. Thank you all for participating!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Rally: Measuring Monday!
Take a square with sides 8. The square is folded such that the angle A is in de middle of the side CD. Given this, what is the area of the grey triangle?
A Pythagorean triangle is a right triangle that can be formed with integral sides. For example a triangle with sides of length 3, 4, and 5. What is the smallest number of matCHes needed to form simultaneously two different (non-congruent) Pythagorean triangles if we allow them to share (parts of) edges? The matCHes may not be broken in any way.
Welcome to Day 2 of the Rally: Testing Tuesday! Both challenges will test your logic skills. The solution to both challenges is in the form of a sentence.

Welcome to Day 3 of the Rally: Winner’s Wednesday!
Today, you shall be tested on your knowledge of the fine arts of mathematics and computer science. Also, questions on the study association and on some of the exclusive ‘did you know?’ facts from the MatCH collection will be asked. This will be done with the help of a Kahoot, which you can fill out on every moment of the day. You can find the link here.
You should fill in your own name, such that we know who the score belongs to. Note that you are only allowed to try the Kahoot once, of course. No e-mail is needed for today’s challenge.
Additionally, we have added bonus challenges today. These can be found at the bottom of the page. You can submit these challenges with as many per e-mail as you like, as long as your name, surname, and ‘Bonus challenges’ is mentioned in the subject.
Hope to see you there, and let the Kahoot begin!
