A Maths Challenge Success for Greenhead Mathematicians

Recently, 160 of our student mathematicians participated in the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge, a 90 minute stimulating but fun challenge consisting of 25 multiple choice maths questions.

The challenge was tough, but they all performed outstandingly with 55 students achieving a bronze certificate, 45 achieving silver and 20 receiving a gold. The students with the gold certificates also qualified for further rounds; the Senior Kangaroo and the British Mathematics Olympiad 1.

We are still awaiting on the results for these rounds!

4 A1 students, James Dierchx, Luke Dodd Adkins, Anjali Narendran and George Sleight, also participated in the regional final of the UKMT Team Challenge, held at the University of Leeds, competing against 22 other teams from the region. They finished in a fantastic 9th place, which is even more impressive as they were competing against a majority of A2 students.

To be entering 160 students into a challenge like this really goes to show the scale of how many talented mathematicians we have here at Greenhead College. They all performed outstandingly well and it was a great way of developing key mathematical and problem solving skills.

Well done to all the students who participated.
