Yr 10 – Maths Feast

Four able and enthusiastic maths students from Year 10 travelled to Penwith College to take part in the West Cornwall round of the Maths Feast organised by the FMSP (Further Maths Support Programme), a national body promoting mathematics at all levels.

Hattie Drummond, Lila Stewart-Roberts, John Board and Ben Forbes all made a strong contribution to the team and were a credit to Mullion School. Situated in a rather intense environment in a lecture theatre the event involved 14 teams participating in 6 rounds of competition over 3 hours.

The Mullion team were always in contention having scored well in the first round with 21 points out of 22 in an algebra card sort. The team went on to win the second round scoring 24 out of 30 points in an activity which required them to compare the sizes of various statements.

Round 3 was a little tricky as it was a ‘new’ topic – set theory, which they had some information given to them before having to answer questions. They scored 22 out of 30 but some schools got maximum marks here. Joint second in the problem solving round and joint first in the making a Columbus cube activity left them well placed to win the competition overall.

Unfortunately in the last round, which was a paired activity, they stumbled over a few questions and only scored 16 points out of 40, pushing them just out of contention. Nevertheless, an excellent effort and I’m sure all four students enjoyed the contest and certainly served Mullion School proud.
