Year 10 Maths Feast

2018 Maths Feast is now open for bookings!

We are happy to be hosting the Maths Feast events below. It is possible that extra events may be added, but all events are likely to fill up, so please book early via the booking form.

You will be contacted to confirm your place at the event or, if it is full, you will be offered a different Feast in a similar area if possible, or placed on a waiting list. If you wish to take two teams, please indicate this on the registration form and if space allows, this will be confirmed closer to the time of the Feast.

Please note that all teams must be accompanied by a responsible adult usually a teacher or teaching assistant, however in the case of a second team this person could be a sixth former. This adult will be supervising and marking a team from a different school during the competition.

An exciting competition for students in year 10 testing mathematical, communication and teamwork skills.

The competition is organised by the Further Mathematics Support Programme and is free to schools/colleges registered with the FMSP. Schools can register with the FMSP at any time by going to Registration.

The students said:

"The best round was relay, I enjoyed the pace and structure of it!"

"Four in a row was fun and fast paced. Had to work together and rely on teammates"

"All the rounds were enjoyable and challenging"

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.

Information about the Feasts

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.

  • Each event lasts approximately 2-3 hours. This may vary slightly between venues
  • Students are encouraged to work as a team or in pairs and only occasionally as individuals
  • Questions include both recreational mathematics and some of a more traditional nature
  • Calculators and equipment such as rulers and protractors are not permitted
  • Awards will be given for best teamwork and the winning team of each round.
  • 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!
