For over 20 years the UK Mathematics Trust, based at Leeds University, have been inspiring a love of problem solving in children through their competitions and enrichment activities. Preparation and entering these competitions encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.
There are three certificates awarded by the UK Mathematics Trust:
The Gold award is achieved by the top 6-7% of the entrants.
The Silver award is achieved by 13-14% of the entrants.
The Bronze award is achieved by 21% of the entrants.
Well performing candidates may also be invited to enter the European Kangaroo and the Mathematical Olympiad.
In October 2022, the Senior Maths Challenge took place in school for students who are aged 19 or below; here are our results:
|Leah||Davis||Gold and Best in School|
|Serena||Andani||Silver and Best in Year|
An extra congratulations to Leah Davis who is through to the Kangaroo Round – watch this space !
Well done everyone.
