    Ruskin GCSE and A Level geographers headed to Iceland at the start of February for a breath-taking trip that is sure to remain with them for many years to come.  Iceland is one of the few places in the world where you can visit and interact with a tectonic plate boundary offering chances to study how tectonics operate and affect people’s lives.  During the trip they were able to visit and observe geographical processes across natural hazards, energy demands, coasts, rivers and physical geography topics, common to both the A Level and GCSE courses they are studying.

  • 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.
