Well done to the team who did indeed qualify for the Senior Team Maths Challenge National Final. No surprise with their amazing score! Check this space for updates.
The department love to celebrate the seasons, and Christmas and Valentine’s day this year were extra special. For Christmas, the department ran a competition where girls were invited to design a bauble with their favourite mathematical concept done in a Christmassy way. The best examples were displayed on the office door, and Kaye Song’s bauble was the winning entry: for her favourite Mathematical concept she chose her teacher Mr Winston in a Santa Hat.
This year, the sixthform were challenged to improve on last year’s ‘Best Ever’ results in the Senior Maths Challenge. As part of the motivation, Ms Copin offered to buy pizza to the classes who performed the best, or managed to improve their scores the most from the previous year. Photo evidence below!
Congratulations to all girls who rose to the challenge, making this year the most successful in history for the second consecutive year, with the highest percentage of Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates ever, and more Gold Certificates than ever before.
