Senior Mathematics Challenge

On 27 November, a team of four A Level Mathematics students namely Harriet Fowler, Peter Aston, Charlie Eardley and Guy Simmonds, travelled to Keele University to represent Westwood College in a Senior Mathematics Challenge.

The students undertook three challenges during the evening, these being a group round with extended problems, a ‘cross number’ round and a team relay.

Whilst sporting their customised t-shirts which received enthusiastic reviews, the team attained sixth place out of 15, this being a great achievement against tough competition.  The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are to be congratulated on their success.

Year 10 Mathematics enrichment day 04 July 2014

Held at Westwood College, Leek High, Endon and Westwood teams took part in various Mathematics challenges during the day. The first session involved solving practical problems kindly provided by Liverpool University ‘fun Mathematics boxes’,  many felt this was their favourite task, the remainder of the day involved an inter-school Mathematics competition. Congratulations to Endon’s first team who were the eventual winners.

The day proved to be both challenging and enjoyable for all, subsequently, an event will be held next year, hopefully attracting an increased number of schools.

Staff from each school displayed excellent involvement, commitment and support, Richard Staker from the Further Mathematics Network had kindly provided resources for the competition in addition to his support. Similarly, Year 12 Further Mathematics students were very able assistants and markers for this event.
