Olivia excels in Mathematics Primary Schools Challenge
Olivia has been presented with a bronze award by The Mathematical Association in this year’s Primary Mathematics Challenge (PMC). The prestigious honour demonstrates her achievement as one of the best young mathematicians in the UK.
The first stage of the challenge took place in November 2017 when the she competed alongside 68,000 children across the country. Successfully answering a variety of mathematical problems, Olivia aged 11, joined the highest scorers who were invited to take part in the PMC Bonus Round in February 2018.
Our Year Six pupil rose to the challenge and was one of 1,857 students to win an award in the Bonus Round.
Speaking of the pupil’s success, Headmistress Miss Hatch, said: “We are all extremely proud that Olivia has won a Bronze award. It is such an achievement to receive recognition for mathematical ability on a national scale. All of our children who took part in the Challenge did brilliantly and most importantly, it showed them that maths can be fun.”
Lesley Jones from The Mathematical Association added: “We would like to offer our congratulations to Olivia and all of the pupils that participated. We received a large number of entries which reflects a real appetite for solving maths problems and puzzles. We always try to make the questions interesting and accessible, while giving pupils an opportunity to apply fundamental maths skills. It is great to be able to acknowledge brilliant young minds in the UK and nurture the future mathematicians.”
The next Primary Mathematics Challenge takes place w/b 12th November 2018. Details at www.primarymathschallenge.org.uk
