Maths Challenge

On the 13th February 2013 eight students (Alex Bint, Josh Broadbent, Morgan Clark, Natania Dixon, Ben Ericson, Cameron Jarman, Marisa Lee and Conor Webb),  split into two teams of four,  went to the Ormiston Maritime Academy in Grimsby to compete in a head to head Mathematics competition.

On the 13th February 2013 eight students (Alex Bint, Josh Broadbent, Morgan Clark, Natania Dixon, Ben Ericson, Cameron Jarman, Marisa Lee and Conor Webb),  split into two teams of four,  went to the Ormiston Maritime Academy in Grimsby to compete in a head to head Mathematics competition.

 

The competition consisted of 6 rounds in which the students battled it out for the top spot. This was the first time students from the Academy had competed in this event and were the only teams from the whole of North Lincolnshire to attend. Out of a total of 11 teams our teams came in at 7th and 9th with respectful scores of 53 and 47. Although neither of the Axholme Academy teams won but they came back with a greater understanding/knowledge of mathematics.

 

Overall it was a great day and maybe next year will, be The Axholme Academy’s year. Ben Ericson quoted, “it was a very interesting time, I came out with more than what I went in with and I hope to do it again next year.” All of the students thank the Maths department for the opportunity to undergo such a rare event.
