Senior Maths Team Regional Competition
On Tuesday 13 November the Senior Maths Team travelled to Holcombe Grammar School, to compete in the regional Team Maths Challenge competition. Hayley and Hanyang (Upper Sixth) and Lucy and Leo (Lower Sixth) represented Caterham School. The first round of the competition was a set of 10 questions on which the team worked together. After the first round (getting eight out of 10 questions right) Caterham was six points behind the leading schools. The second round was the cross number round which is like a crossword with maths clues. Our pupils really enjoyed that round, performing very well and getting 59/60 possible marks! After the first two rounds Caterham was in fifth place, seven points behind first place. The final round had a set of four questions with the pupils working in pairs where pupils needed the solution to the previous question to answer their own question. We were hoping to manage a high scoring performance to reclaim our title (regional champions 2015 and 2016) and qualify to the National Final in London. Despite performing really well in the last round we finished fourth, seven points from first place (missing a great chance of getting nine more marks in the last round). It was a great day overall and the pupils had a wonderful time!
