Year 11s perform well at Millfield Maths Challenge

Year 11s perform well at Millfield Maths Challenge

On Wednesday 14th March 2018, eight of Holyrood’s most excellent mathematicians journeyed to Millfield School in Street to compete with the county’s finest mathematical minds. Our Year 11 students completed 5 rounds of mathematical tests, finishing a highly respectable 7th and 8th out of 13 teams. Notably, the Holyrood A and B teams were 2nd and 3rd best placed non-private schools in the competition.

The rounds were themed as Group, Fizz-Buzz, Head-to-Head, Relay and Speed. The students tackled many challenging questions on topics including square and cube numbers, Pythagoras theorem in 3D and the nth term of a sequence.

Maths teacher at Holyrood, Mr Macdonald, said “The energy, enthusiasm and confidence that the 8 students showed was a credit to the Academy. Both teams displayed excellent team work and had a thoroughly enjoyable time! Congratulations to all that took part.”
