Cheltenham College Maths Challenge

12/02/2020

On Tuesday 4th February last week a team of Y6’s with Me, Ethan, Harriet ,Zoe and in the Y5’s Ben, Benjamin, Megan and Isla went to a maths challenge at Cheltenham college. The following challenges were 15 word problems to complete in a time with your team, a relay with the team split into pairs, a massive logic problem,  a number crossword and a countdown with ways using bodmas to create a number with only certain numbers. We were given snacks and squash in between some challenges and at lunchtime we had lunch in their big dining hall with a limit of only 1 hot chocolate. Overall we came 7th and y5’s got 4th which was a great result over the tough competition.
