On Thursday 9th March, Year 9 pupils Chloe Daves and Niamh Brodigan travelled to a school in Doncaster with Year 8 pupils Georgia Smith and Ellysha Fitz-George to represent Goole Academy at a UK Maths Trust Team Maths Challenge Regional Final.
The UKMT has been running this Team Competition since 2003 and the events are always very enthusiastically received by all those schools who participate in both the Regional and National Finals. The competition combines mathematical, communication and teamwork skills and offers pupils another way to express and develop their enjoyment of Mathematics.
The competition is always very tough and the team came a very respectable 14th out of the 30 schools in attendance. Overall winners were Sheffield High School for Girls, who will now attend the National Final in London.
