Having won the regional Maths challenge event in Doncaster, in November 2018, our OGA team were invited to the UK final on 5 February 2019.
The students worked tirelessly hard to compete against 87 other teams at this fierce competition, held in Westminster, London.
There were 5 rounds over 5 hours with extremely challenging mathematical problems to complete, requiring effective teamwork, mathematical strategies along with speed.
Although our team didn’t win, they made us extremely proud having ventured up to London at the crack of dawn to compete. They had been well-prepared to present their proofs of pi and successfully produced a poster at the event.
All in all it was a successful day with our team showing genuine dedication and skill alongside the best teenage mathematicians in the country.
