FMSP Maths Feast Team Challenge
On Monday 21st March, two teams of four students took part in The Further Maths Support Programme (FMSP) Year 10 Team Maths Feast at Bootham School York.
The Year 10 Maths Feast is a challenging team competition testing mathematical, team-working and communication skills. It consisted of a series of rounds where the students have to co-operate with each other to gain points. This year's challenge involved countdown, solving problems with pentominoes, using complex numbers (an A-level topic) and a mathematical relay. Team A were joint winners of the Countdown round. The time limits added an interesting dimension to the competition, by ensuring that communicating as a team was crucial.
We had an enjoyable afternoon out of school (it was all mathematics!), and the students were a credit to Selby High School.
