On Saturday 4th March 29 pupils from year 7 - 13 attended the annual Pop Maths Quiz held at Sheffield Hallam University. Through the course of the day students participated in maths challenges against pupils from other schools. The challenge attracts competition from across the region and beyond. Pupils put up a good fight, demonstrating high levels of understanding and although they didn't win the trophy they should be very proud of their performance.
In the afternoon the students enjoyed a talk given 'The Creation of Numbers' by mathematician Ben Sparkes. He was a very engaging speaker and pupils seized the opportunity to stay after the lecture to ask him further questions.
