  • UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge

    Published 05/11/18

    On Friday 2nd November, four of our most talented mathematicians travelled to LSST in Lincoln for a regional heat of the UKMT Team Maths Challenge.

    The four students worked brilliantly within all three extremely challenging rounds:

     

    1. The Group Round: Ten questions which teams have around 40 minutes to solve. Teams must decide their own strategy: work in pairs, as a group or individually.

    2. The Cross Number: This is similar to a crossword but with numerical answers. Teams work in pairs, with one pair having the across clues, and the other pair having the down clues.

    3. The Shuttle Round: Teams compete against the clock to correctly answer a series of four questions. Each team is divided into Pair A (given Questions 1 and 3) and Pair B (given Questions 2 and 4). Question 1 can be solved independently of the others, but the answer to each subsequent question is dependent on the previous answer.
