Senior maths challenge

TORPOINT SIX FORM STUDENTS SUCCESS IN UK MATHS COMPETITION!

Five of our top mathematicians in Years 12 and 13 took part in the UK Senior Maths Challenge. The maths challenge is a one and a half hour paper that contains a variety of questions that involve puzzles, problems, logic as well as maths, which make them challenging and enjoyable to those taking part. It is a national competition with the best mathematicians from all over the UK taking part. The paper is designed to challenge the most able students and get them to think about the maths skills that they need to use.  Brad Chapman of Year 13 achieved a Bronze certificate, Best in Year 13 and Best in School and Rosie Richardson achieved Best in Year 12. Louis Sanderson (Year 13) , Finn Woodrow (Year 12) and Jack Battersby (Year 12) also participated in the challenging competition and narrowly missed out on awards. Well done guys!
