Intermediate Maths Challenge 2017
In February 40 of our top year 9 students entered the UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge.
The UKMT maths challenges are entered by over 600,000 students from over 4,000 schools across the UK and the intermediate level is aimed at students in years 9-11. The challenge consists of multiple choice questions designed to stimulate interest in mathematics, as it is entirely problem and logic solving using mathematical knowledge, it is very different to the 'traditional' style questions students see in class and assessments.
Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates are only awarded to the top 40% of students nationally and we are really proud of the following students for gaining a bronze certificate; Khulh Elgareidi, Molly Doran and Kaylan Wroblewski. A number of other students only missed out on a certificate by a couple of points and I am sure that as they move through to year 10 and 11 we will see more certificates gained at Nottingham Free School.
Have ago at one of the question above, could you have been in the top 40% of students?
Future challenges: UKMT Team Maths Challenge 28th March and UKMT Junior Maths Challenge (Year 7-8) 27th April.
