The Mathematics Department at BISP is celebrating some of their best ever United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Challenge results, with 18 students awarded certificates. The competition is designed to challenge even the very best Year 12 and Year 13 mathematicians from schools around the world, so results this year were really impressive. In order to win a certificate, students must excel whilst tackling 25 mathematical problems. These are designed to test a students’ problem-solving skills and how they can apply their mathematical abilities to real life situations.
“These really are an impressive set of results and highlight the dedication and enthusiasm our students show towards Mathematics – well done to all,” commented Mr Richard Griffin, Head of Mathematics at the school.
In total, students earned 5 Bronze awards, 9 Silver awards and 4 Golds. This year the Gold certificates went to Aom, Elias, Luciano and Nayoung. Aom also gained the Top in School certificate; Nayoung was awarded Top in Year 12. Congratulations to all the students who took part this year and we look forward to some equally impressive results when the Junior and Intermediate UKMT competitions are held later.
