Four children from Mighty Oaks took part in the National Young Mathematicians competition recently, run in collaboration with the NRICH project at the University of Cambridge. They worked incredibly well as a team, applying their reasoning and problem-solving skills to make it through the first round and be invited back for the regional finals. They tackled very tricky maths problems, being praised by the organisers for their methodical working and good written methods. Ultimately, the team missed out on being regional champions (and a place in the national final at Cambridge University) by just one point!
We are very proud of our super mathematicians, and we will carry on training up all our mathematicians for future competitions!
