UKMT Maths Team Challenge
Torpoint students have been taking part in the regional heats of some maths challenges against local schools in recent weeks.
The UKMT Maths Team Challenge took place at Coombe Dean School and involved students from years 8 and 9. The students had to negotiate a number of tough rounds, including a group competition, a mathematical crossnumber, a relay round and a shuttle round. Our students worked really well as a team, and showed some excellent mathematical reasoning during the day. We finished a credible 10th overall out of the schools that took part. Well done to Kate and Luke in Year 8, and Jenna and Jack in Year 9.
The FMSP Maths Feast took place at UTC Plymouth and involved students from year 10. The rounds were split into a true or false round, a comprehension round, a relay round and a problem solving round. Our team of year 10 students were fantastic, showing a brilliant understanding in the early rounds, and being right up there with the leaders. The final rounds were challenging, and our students made an excellent effort on some very tricky problems. We ended finishing 9th overall, but our students should be very proud of how they performed. Well done to Tyler, Adelina, Catrin and Genna.
Both sets of students were fantastic, and were a credit to the college.
