UKMT Maths Challenge
We had a number of Year 10 students compete in the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge. This is a national competition open to Year 11 students and below, it is a 60 minute, multiple-choice Challenge. It is designed to encourage mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems. The problems on the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge are intended to make students think.
Our congratulations go out to all those who took part in the challenge. We had a number of successful students, including Henry Tomlinson and Henry Phillips (pictured) who both achieved gold awards, and then progressed on to the Pink Kangaroo challenge where they both achieved Merits.
As well as the two gold awards, we had a number of students achieving the silver and bronze awards.
