Alex Cox (8N), Oliver Rockett (8N), Alex Chatfield (9T) and Alex O’Neill (9N) took part in the National finals of the Team Maths Challenge which was held in London on Monday 20th June. Having won the regional heat which took place at Corfe Hills school in March the four students were given the task of presenting a poster on the theme of “The Golden Ratio” as preparation for the rounds that would take place in London. Out of 96 teams the students came tenth. This is their best performance having won the regional round for the last three years and making the National final for the last three years. Their performance during the previous years has been 24th out of 75 teams and last year they finished 34th out of 80 teams. Each year the team changes because of the requirement to have two students from Year 8 and two students from Year 9. In all three years the team has been led by Mrs Barnes. Well done to all concerned.
