Students make it through to National Young Mathematician Award finals
Four eager mathematicians at Queen’s Lower School have made it through to the national final of the National Young Mathematician Award 2013.
Year 6 pupils Leah Heartin, Maryam Khan, Evie Tipping and Beth Tenner, all from Chester, eased their way through the first round at the Explore centre, by solving a multi-layered, high level problem and demonstrating fantastic teamwork.
Once they had investigated, they had to prepare a presentation to explain their results.
During the second round they excelled themselves and we are delighted to announce that they made it through to the National final, which will be held at Cambridge University tomorrow (Tuesday, December 10).
Maths teacher Rebecca Edwards said: “This is a marvellous result as only the best five schools in the country are invited to the final.
“We look forward with keen anticipation to discover the conclusion of this prestigious competition.”
