Senior Team Maths Challenge


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.

Regional STMC events usually take place in November and early December. However, due to current restrictions on face-to-events the STMC will not be running in 2020. We still want schools and colleges to be able to access the competition resources for their own internal enrichment; these will be available for download later this term, via the UK Mathematics Trust website.


  • Experience the fun of tackling maths problems as part of a team
  • Develop mathematical, communication and teamwork skills

Who will benefit from attending?

Students in Years 11-13.


No knowledge beyond GCSE Mathematics is required for the heats, and there will be a focus on developing problem-solving skills.

Practice resources and materials from previous STMCs are available here.

Materials and Equipment

Teams may bring paper dictionaries to help with translations but no other equipment is needed or allowed.
