Fantastic Senior Mathematics Challenges Result

On Tuesday 6th November 2018 thirty-eight A level Mathematics students from NUAST took part in the individual 90 minute brain workout of the Senior Maths Challenge, organised by the UKMT based at Leeds University. Impressive then, that four of our students achieved gold certificates, with two students invited to participate in the UKMT Olympiad competition on 30th November: Bruno Truben and Isaac Dixon who were also Kangeroo qualifiers last year. The Olympiad competition is devised to pit the very best mathematical brains around the world against one another – we look forward to hearing how Isaac and Bruno get on. Zong Yuan Wang and Doyle Tuggey were also awarded gold certificates and progress to the regional Kangaroo competition. Thirteen students achieved silver certificates with three Year 12 students only one point off a gold certificate and Kangaroo qualification: Harry Graham, Oliver Leask and William Burbidge. There were eleven bronze certificates awarded. Just in case this sounds easy we’ve included one of this year’s 25 problems above for you to try – no calculators allowed!​

Year 10 and 11 students now have the ambitious target of twenty-eight certificates to beat in the up and coming Intermediate Mathematics Challenge in the new year.
