Year 10 Maths Team Challenge
This term, eight Year 10 students represented The Broxbourne School at the ‘Maths Feast’ team competition in Hemel Hempstead.
Team members were Yasemin Durmus, Liam Connolly, Millie Downes, Kerim Hassan, James Thompson, Yigit Copuroglu, Jakub Jurkowski and Ben Duncan.
This competition tests both the mathematical knowledge and logical skills of the students taking part. The afternoon was split into different rounds each of which tested a different skill and the students’ ability to work together as a team.
In one particularly challenging round, teams were given time to read a poster explaining the concept of imaginary numbers and then had to work together to answer a set of questions using this new knowledge.
All the students enjoyed their afternoon working on different styles of mathematical problems.
