UK Maths Challenge Week
On Thursday 1st February a number of students ranging for year 7-10 took part in the UK Maths Challenge. The UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) is a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. The UKMT organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for 11-18 year old UK school pupils. They were established in 1996 and last academic year over 650,000 pupils from 4,500 schools took part in the three individual challenges, the UK's biggest national maths competitions.
The Mathematical challenges aim to stimulate mathematical problem solving and as you can see from the photograph our year 10 students embraced the challenge with courage and curiosity. To recognise the highest performers in the Challenge the UKMT award the top-scoring 40% of participants bronze, silver and gold certificates. We hope that taking part in these Mathematical Challenges is a stimulating and rewarding experience for all students involved.
