Nexus VI Form students compete at regional mathematics finals

By on Nov 24, 2017 in Blog |

Congratulations to the four CSIA students who took part in this year’s regional heat of the Senior Maths Team challenge hosted by the Further Maths Support Programme.

The group of Mia, Conor, Jools and Ross competed valiantly and finished an impressive 6th out of 18 against a field of very tough opposition.

The competition was made of a series of thought provoking and demanding challenges designed to test even the strongest of mathematicians including a fast paced and complex mathematical relay.

A similar event will be held for students in Year 10 in the new year.  Well done to all of the students involved.

This is the sort of question the students had to face:
