On Thursday 2nd February, our year 9 mathematicians took part in the UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge.

This national challenge consists of 25 maths problems which test students’ logical thinking, ability to problem solve, and extension of understanding to the mathematical ideas they cover in their maths lessons.

In year 9, we had joint “best in year” with an identical score of 50. Jason and Rafael were awarded a bronze award and were just 5 points away from Silver!

Well done to all those that participated! For anyone who would like to take part next year, the UKMT website has a comprehensive collection of past papers which can be used for practice. These challenges are meant to be fun, and are meant to push you out of your comfort zone, so they are an excellent resource for students who enjoy a challenge.
