Throughout this term, students have been applying themselves to different maths challenges to extend and challenge their knowledge. Most recent of these challenges took place on the 7th February when a small group sat the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, which is a one hour test for students from G1 and G2.

Later this term, G1 students will be taking part in a team maths challenge; working together to solve problems set by AMSP.
