On Thursday 7th November, nearly fifty A Level Maths students at Bexhill College took part in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Senior Maths Challenge.
The Challenge involved a ninety-minute test which encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.
Following the Maths Challenge, the highest scoring students will be able to take part in either the British Mathematical Olympiad or the Senior Kangaroo in late November. Head of Section for Maths and Computing, Aaron Pain, explained: "We believe multiple students will have reached these thresholds. We will also use the results to form the college team for the Senior Team Maths Challenge. The regional heat for this competition is being hosted at the College in early December.”
The students hope to receive their results from the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge within the next few weeks. Head of Section Aaron Pain concluded: "We expect lots of our students to receive certificates for their efforts.”
Congratulations to all the students who took part and to the staff who organised the Challenge.
