Senior Team Maths Challenge

Overview

The Senior Team Maths Challenge (STMC) provides enrichment and challenge to teams of senior students in the UK. The competition tests students in Years 11, 12 and 13 on their mathematical, communication and teamwork skills, with teams of four competing over several rounds to reach the final. The STMC is organised by the AMSP in partnership with UK Mathematics Trust.

Regional STMC events usually take place in November and early December, with a national final held in London early the following February. Due to restrictions on face-to-face events we were unable to run the STMC in 2020. Schools and colleges wishing to use the planned competition materials for their own internal enrichment can now download them via our STMC resource archive, which is available here.
