The UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge
On Thursday 1 February, seven classes in our Senior School, in Year 9, 10 and 11, took part in the annual UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge. This is a multiple choice paper which challenges students to combine their Maths skills and think outside of the box. The topics are varied and increase in difficulty. Students lose marks if they submit a wrong answer so it is extremely challenging - no guessing is allowed!
Only the top 25% of students in the country get any award at all. Blackheath High School students achieved a total of 16 Silver and 24 Bronze awards. This represents 35% of those who took the paper which was significantly above average. Congratulations to all the students who took part, and well done to all those who received an award.
