For the past two weeks some of Halcyon’s Grade 10 and 11 students have taken part in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) senior individual challenge and competed in the team challenge.
Competing in the team challenge, Eric, Maga, Nate and Scott did exceptionally with the crossnumber round (a mathematical crossword puzzle which uses numbers instead of letters) earning full marks. They came 9th out of 28 teams in the challenge.
Halcyon students also did very well in the individual challenges. Following their fantastic results, Eric was invited to take part in the British Mathematical Olympiad follow-on round and Nate was invited to take part in the Kangaroo follow-on round. We wish them luck!
Furthermore, Eric and Nate receive Gold certificates for their performance, Scott received a Silver Award, and Anne-Marie, Nathan and Thomas received Bronze.
Congratulations to everyone for their tremendous efforts!
