Excited, intrigued, interested – On Tuesday, four of our most talented mathematician’s travelled to the National Young Mathematician Competition, where they had to complete a series of challenging mathematical problems.
The National Young Mathematicians’ Awards are the only team maths competition for primary schools in the UK. The competition, now in its seventh year, is run in conjunction with the NRICH project at the University of Cambridge and is designed to inspire and challenge talented mathematicians from across the UK.
The competition will consist of three rounds. The first is a regional knock out undertaken at an Explore Learning centre on the 8th, 9th or 10th November. Winners will go through to the Semi Final on the 23rd November where school teams will battle it out against other top schools in their region to try and win a space at the Grand Final taking place at the University of Cambridge on 7th December.
Fingers crossed our team from Prince Edward’s make it to the next round! Watch this space…
