Shrewsbury reaches National Final of UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge

Thursday 28 November 2013

Congratulations to the Maths Challenge Team of Arthur Kung, Dan Hart, Sophie Zhou and Jonathan Cheng, who have qualified for the National Final of the UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge.

The competition tests mathematical, communication and teamwork skills and is jointly organised by the UK Mathematics Trust and the Further Maths Support Programme. It includes challenges such as ‘cross numbers’ (like a crossword but with numerical answers, when one pair in the team has the across clues and the other has the down clues) and ‘mini relays’, when members of the team have to answer mathematical questions which they can begin work on immediately but information passed from other members of the team is needed to solve them completely.

A total of 1050 teams entered the competition this year and the Shrewsbury team are now in the last 64. The final will be held in the Camden Centre, London on 4 February 2014.
