Following a conversation with our friends at Maths Week London, we will be producing a quiz that all schools can have a go at, and there will be fantastic prize for the winning schools in each category.
The quiz will work as follows. On the first morning of Maths Week, a series of questions will be published on this page. There will be questions suitable for every year group from Reception to Year 13. If your school has, for example, years 5-8, you would only do the questions for those year groups.
The answers will all be numbers. Once each year group has answered all its questions, they should add their answers together to find their year group total. This added to the the other year groups’ totals, should come to a prearranged ‘school score’, calculated by the specified year groups in your school.
Send us your school grand total, and we will do the rest!
This way, EVERY child in the school can contribute, and the answers found by a 4 year-old child will carry just as much weight as those found by an A-level student: MATHS FOR ALL!
NB: Special schools, please get in touch with us in advance. We will agree a suitable level of challenge, and there will be a prize for this important category of schools as well.
Don’t forget that in addition to this quiz Manga High will be running a free-to-enter online competition.
