The Junior Mathematical Challenge is national competition where students have 60-minutes to complete a multiple-choice Challenge that encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.
The problems on the Junior Mathematical Challenge are designed to make students think. Most are accessible, yet still challenge those with more experience.
Those that do particularly well are then invited to take part in the Junior Olympiad and Junior Kangaroo Maths Challenges.
This year, the competition was on 26th April 2023, and the school selected thirty Year 7 students and thirty Year 8 students to take part.
The results will not be available for another couple of weeks as they need to be processed by the UKMT, but I think we could still say well done to all of those that took part.
