Year 10 Maths Feast
This was held last month at Birmingham University. It is an exciting competition for students in Year 10 testing mathematical communication and teamwork skills. It was organised by the Further Mathematics Support Programme. Each team consisted of four students in Year 10 working together on a set of problems.
Two teams from EHS were able to demonstrate that they could react positively to new situations and apply previous knowledge to solve problems. We congratulate the following girls for taking part: Safa Akhtar, Katie Buxton, Clemency Abbott Black, Natasha Carmichael, Maddey England Kerr, Poppy Lovell, Emily Towers and Sophie Verrall.
Junior Team Challenge
The Challenge took place two weeks ago at Camp Hill School for Boys. Well done to the team of Davina Magherefteh and Harine Nemal in Year 9 and Priya Jagpal and Simran Afzal in Year 8 who were able to apply their mathematical knowledge to tough questions in unusual situations, whilst maintaining their enthusiasm and working well as a team throughout.
