Counting on a win
Freemen's maths champions make it to the UKMT national finals
Some of our best senior mathematicians travelled to Epsom College with Mrs Cast this week to take part in the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Senior Team Maths Challenge. After three rounds of fast-paced problems including a fiendish crossnumber, the team achieved an amazing joint first place.
Freemen’s is proud to be involved with the UKMT, a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. The team challenges are designed to promote mathematical dexterity, teamwork and communication skills whilst giving pupils the opportunity to compete against pupils from other schools.
Congratulations must go to the Freemen’s Maths team, Yunjae, Michelle, Grace and Yolanda, for doing so well – the School’s best placing ever and with amazing scores in each round. The team now goes through to the National Final to be held in London in February.
