On Thursday, 27th April, the Mathematics department hosted the UKMT Junior Mathematics Competition. 40 of our Year 7 and 8 students participated. Results are expected soon. The top scorers will be invited to participate in the next round of the Kangaroo Challenge also sponsored by the UKMT.
A group of three students in Year 9, Licheng Guo, Richard Kovac and Gyumin Shim, participated in the ISMTF Mathematics competition in Bratislava last weekend, 28th – 30th April. The students competed as a team against 50 other teams from around Europe.
According to the students, “It was a great experience getting to work with students from other International Schools. The competition questions were challenging, but fun. Our favourite part was when we learnt about unsolved puzzles from Dr. Katie Steckles – it was really interesting!”
