The students said:
"The Bursts of Four round was really challenging - it was great!"
"I really enjoyed learning new maths"
"The practical round was fun and interesting"
The Year 10 Maths Feast is an enjoyable and challenging team competition testing mathematical, team-working and communication skills. Each year the format of the competition changes slightly so that the rounds remain interesting and exciting.
The table below shows the Feasts which are planned for 2017. Extra Feasts may be added, but all are filled on a first come first serve basis so apply early to avoid disappointment by using the Application Form.
There are no heats or finals so participants can take the materials back to their schools and use them for other students in their classes to enrich and extend their learning. Perhaps the best way of using these materials is to ask participating students to run the rounds with their classes!
Each team consists of four students in Year 10 working together on a set of problems. They must be accompanied by a member of staff, whose role is to supervise a team from a different school and mark rounds with the answers provided.
There are several rounds requiring different skills and strategies for success.
We have designed the Maths Feast to support students in developing their problem solving skills. For this reason we are not giving details of the rounds in this Feast although practice materials are available to schools to use if they wish.
The most important skills we want students to demonstrate in the Feast are those of team work, communication, reacting positively to a new situation and applying previous knowledge to solve problems - Good luck and Bon Appetit!
We will email these when your team entry has been successful but we have included them here for your reference.
