The Launch of the Global Classroom Global Mathematics Challenge

20 January 2015

This week saw the first of the Global Mathematics Challenges that Martin Brown, our Head of Mathematics, has launched with our other Nord Anglia Education schools. Martin Brown is the Nord Anglia Education teaching fellow for mathematics. These fellows are selected as a result of their outstanding work in their subject area and they undertake professional enquiries and lead and develop the teaching of the subject across the group of schools. Mr Brown tells us more about the Global Mathematics Challenges…

One of my initiatives in my role as teaching fellow is to launch the Global Mathematics Challenges, with the first challenge taking place this week. Through this I am hoping to both raise the profile of the Global Classroom and, of course, to raise the profile of Mathematics.

There will be four challenges over the next three months and these are split into the Junior Challenge for Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 and the Senior Challenge for Years 11 and 12.

For each Challenge there will be an official one week window for students to take the Challenge, which will be taken under test conditions. After this time students will have the opportunity to join the online discussion for each Challenge with their peers around the world on the Global Classroom.

To make the Challenge more interesting, each school will submit their top eight scores for each challenge. The students with the highest cumulative scores over the series of challenges will be awarded Certificates of Distinction or Merit and there will also be certificates for the highest scoring schools.

I am hoping that these challenges will inspire our students to get further involved in Mathematics and to work with students from around the world.
