The Intermediate Maths Challenge

On Thursday 7th February, 34 very able Mathematicians from Years 9 and 10 took part in the UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge, which is aimed at students in Year 11 or below.  The Mathematical Challenges aim to stimulate mathematical problem solving, and involves answering 25 multiple choice questions in one hour, all under exam conditions.

The top 40% of students nationally receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze certificate in the ratio 1:2:3.  One student in each year will receive a ‘Best in Year’ certificate, and one student will receive a ‘Best in School’ certificate. In addition, the UKMT invite around 1,500 of the very highest performers to take part in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad – and around 8,000 to take part in the Intermediate Kangaroo.

Well done to everyone who took part.  The results and certificates will be published and distributed within the next 3 weeks.

Thank you to Dammie and James from University of Plymouth for delivering an assembly to our Year 7 students on the Devon & Cornwall Children’s University.

Many students will be familiar with this ‘passport’ scheme from primary school, and we would like them to continue to gain recognition for their commitments to clubs and extra-curricular activities.

Geography Volcanoes Project

Over the last few weeks, 7B3 have been producing teaching models as part of their Geography unit of work – investigating tectonic activity.

Students were tasked with producing a creative but educational model that could be used to help other people learn about the physical causes of volcanoes and earthquakes – they certainly did a great job!

Well done to all students. It is going to be a difficult job picking a winner! Results will be announced shortly…
