Congratulations to all the Reigate College students who took part in this year’s Senior Maths Challenge. Of the 55 students who entered, 12 achieved Gold Certificates, 13 Silver and 26 Bronze. The number of Gold Certificates achieved this year is higher than in the previous three years combined, so this is a fantastic result.
Maths Teacher David Neumann, who oversees the College’s entries said, “All the Gold Certificate winners have also qualified for the follow-on Kangaroo Round. The overall top scorer for the second year in a row was Gemma Heinrich, who has again qualified for the British Mathematical Olympiad Round One.”
“It’s particularly pleasing to see so many Lower Sixth students doing so well (5 of the Golds and numerous Silver and Bronze Certificates). Staff in the Maths Department are delighted that many of the students involved in the Maths Challenges have taken the initiative to start their own Maths Club. This now thriving club involves discussions centred around the UKMT Competition problems.”
The charity UK Mathematics Trust was founded in 1996 with the aim of advancing the education of young people in Mathematics. The competitions it organises are intended to promote problem-solving skills and enjoyment of Mathematics.
