I just wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic, well organised and fun filled day.
My year 9 and Year 12 students both took part in the challenge and they all really enjoyed it.
This is the first tine we have been involved but it certainly won’t be the last.
Many thanks for the excellent challenge which four of our classes participated in today. They seemed to really enjoy it and get a lot out of the experience.
Thanks a million for organising that challenge.
We loved it, pupils and teachers.
Maths was ‘cool’ for a day!
Just to report that we had a great time taking part in the Maths Challenge, especially the video-conferencing session with you this afternoon. We were wondering if you had managed to record it and if you could send us a copy of that for our records. It would be very much appreciated. Best wishes,
Just to let you know the pupils had a great time on Friday and responded very positively to the challenge.
Thanks for all your hard work in organising this quiz. I will try to expand our participation if you run it again next year
All classes and teachers involved thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and are talking about how we will build in the cross-curricular and international aspects next year, so please continue. I’d like to thank you for what must be very hard work and a headache at times but so worthwhile.
Thank you very much for organising this Maths Challenge. The children really enjoyed it. There was a lot of discussion around problem solving in mixed ability pairs and great debate leading to joint answers.
