Do you know anyone in sixth form and secondary school who likes cracking codes or solving puzzles? Or maybe you just know pupils who want to win some prizes? Registration for the 2019 MathsBombe Competition is now open!
Who: Year 13 and below in England and Wales, S6 in Scotland and Year 14 in N. Ireland
What: This is an online competition, with two mathematical puzzles released every fortnight. With four sets of puzzles in total, participants will be competing against other students from across the UK. The puzzles are quirky, fun and cover the full spectrum of mathematics; they are not directly related to the A-Level syllabus and are unlike problems in, say, the UKMT. Instead, students need to use their problem-solving skills and ‘think outside the box’ – valuable skills for students going on to study STEM subjects at university. MathsBombe is supported by the Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Trust.
When: The MathsBombe starts on Wednesday, 30 January 2019
