Mathematical Challenge

The Scottish Mathematical Council Mathematical Challenge is a problem solving competition for individual pupils in Scottish secondary schools and upper primary schools (mainly P7).

The aim is to promote mathematics as a source of interest and pleasurable achievement.

The competition is divided into four divisions: Primary (P7), Junior (S1 and S2), Middle (S3 and S4), and Senior (S5 and S6).  Each year there are two rounds of problems for Secondary schools and three rounds for Primary schools.
