MATHS TRIP TO UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE
Year 8 and 9 students travel to Cambridge for Junior Team Maths Challenge.
Mr Blanchard, Teacher of Maths, recently accompanied four students from Years 8 and 9 to the University of Cambridge Centre for Mathematical Studies. Jacob Millward, Millie Downes, James Thompson and Lucia Banks took part in the regional final of the Junior Team Maths Challenge, organised by the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT).
Thirty schools were represented at the regional final. They were required not only to solve problems against the clock, but also to negotiate their way around the hall to select the next problem.
Mr Blanchard said the day was enjoyed by all the students and that “In July the school will hold its own maths competition for Years 7 and 8 – a kind of mathematical sports day.”
