Inter House Maths Challenge

Inter House Maths Challenge

This year’s Inter-House Maths Challenge involved students using their artistic design skills as well as their maths skills. The activity took place during Maths Week, with years 7, 8, 9 and 10 all having a go at the challenge.

The students were asked to work in teams of four, and each had to come up with a design including their house logo, as well as some mathematical shapes. 
They then had to pass their design onto someone else in their team to reflect, rotate, or translate, so each team ended up with four designs!

There were some fantastic designs from all the year groups, and the students really enjoyed the opportunity to use their art and maths skills at the same time. A lot of thought went into many of the designs, showing an excellent understanding on different transformations.

Mr Doogan, a Maths teacher, helped to organise the event and said, “ There was a real buzz in the hall during each year group challenge. The students worked well in their teams, communicating and explaining reflections, rotations and translations to each other very well. They all seemed to really enjoy it.”
