Last term, three teams of Year 9 students took part in the North West Maths Challenge, organised by Edge Hill University. The questions were designed to challenge students’ mathematical capabilities and problem-solving skills, in order to push the most-able mathematicians.
Over 500 school teams from across the North West took part in the competition and 14 went through to the finals, which were held at the Edge Hill University on Wednesday, 4th July 2018.
Our team, “Mathsdem”, with Oliver Hindley, Iwan Jones and Samay Prakash went all the way through to the finals and had an opportunity to present their solution to the judge panel.
The students have done extremely well and received certificates and Maths puzzle books for their participation and getting through to the finals.
