Good luck to Gad’s mathematicians

Best of luck to L4R’s Scarlett Rowswell and Oliver Singer and U4T’s Millie Ashton and George Hake who are representing Gad’s in a maths competition today.

The four students, accompanied by Head of Maths, Mr Harris are travelling to Dover College to take part in the UK Mathematics Trust Team Maths Challenge.

The event is open to all schools and colleges in the UK and gives pupils the opportunity to tackle a variety of engaging mathematical activities while developing teamwork and communication skills.

There are several rounds including ‘Crossnumber’ where teams work in pairs to solve numerical clues using logic and deduction and ‘Relay’, a fast-paced problem-solving test with lots of lively activity and excitement.
