Explore Learning Mathematician's Award

Mathematicians go Exploring!

Last Thursday (16th January), Aditi Jha, Anna Foster, Daisy Murley and Zoe Zatco in Year 7 went with Mr Hughes to participate in the Explore Learning Mathematicians’ Awards. It is a team competition and     hundreds of schools take part. A rival team of four Year 8 boys from Nicholas Breakspear School were   taking part at the same time, but the STAGS girls were feeling confident and worked hard throughout.

The challenge involved creating shapes according to a pattern and trying to find all the possible             combinations of area and perimeter. The teamwork was amazing and the girls gave a fantastic          presentation at the end explaining all of their findings and handing in a paper summary. Only five           secondary schools will be selected for the grand final, so we will wait and see if we have qualified.
