This year has been a very successful one for WBS in the Maths Challenge thanks to all the enthusiastic pupils who took part. Across all three Maths Challenges, 79% of pupils who took part received a certificate for their achievement, while 24 out of the 135 pupils who took part were invited to participate in the follow-up round for their age group. Special mention goes to Ethan Sosin and Sam Liew, who both received medals for their outstanding achievement in the Junior and Intermediate Olympiads respectively.
“The UKMT Senior Maths Challenge is an interesting and engaging series of papers suited to gifted maths students. It allows us to apply maths we learn to problems outside of our curriculum, develop our problem solving skills and introduce us to a more abstract area of maths, maths for itself. It also stretches students and allows natural mathematicians to express their true ability in some very interesting mathematics. I would highly recommend taking part in the Maths Challenge to any aspiring mathematicians who may wish to study mathematics further, or who just enjoy maths as a subject.” Robbie Keywood and Nathan Schofield, Senior Maths Challenge participants
