The Enterprising Mathematics Challenge took place for the first time in Highland last year, and we are delighted to offer this exciting challenge for primary schools again in 2018!
The event will take place on 21st March 2018 at Dingwall Academy, in conjunction with the University of Aberdeen and University of the Highlands and Islands and will be open to Primary 6 and Primary 7 pupils.
Each school can enter a team of three pupils with an accompanying teacher/adult. A team should consist of at least one boy and one girl from either Primary 6 or Primary 7, although for smaller schools consideration will be given for pupils in Primary 5 to enter too.
Whilst there will be an element of competition between schools, the emphasis of the day will be on working together, mathematical thinking, skills and enjoyment.
The day will run from approximately 9:45 till 3:00, with different problem solving and mathematical challenges throughout the day – further details will be given nearer the time, but here are some example of the challenges from last year:

All participants and their schools will receive certificates of participation, with prizes for the best poster and the overall winning team will be presented with the Highland Enterprising Mathematics Challenge trophy.
As demand was very high last year, places will be limited, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to enter a team for this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th January 2018.
