Eltham Hill Maths Feast

Eltham

Overview

This is another opportunity for you to have a go at this year's maths feast.  Please do not bring the same students who attended a feast this year.

Maths Feast is a fun educational challenge for Year 10 students which tests problem-solving and teamwork skills. Teams of four students will test their maths skills with our all-you-can-eat feast of problems!

There are several rounds requiring different skills and strategies for success. Each event takes between two and three hours, and awards will be given for good teamwork and for the winning team of each round.

This may also be a good opportunity for your current year 9s to get a flavour of the maths feast before taking part next year.

Aims

  • Improve problem-solving skills using recreational maths
  • Improve teamwork and communication skills

Who will benefit from attending?

Maths Feast is open to all Year 10 students who want to improve their mathematical and teamwork skills.  This is a repeat of the maths feast that took part this year so you may also consider bringing year 9 students. 

Content

What's on the menu? Well that would be telling...

We change the format and content of Maths Feast every year to keep the challenge exciting. However, we promise that content will be familiar or accessible to most Year 10s and could include both recreational and more traditional maths problems.

Practice resources and materials from previous Maths Feasts are available here.

Materials and Equipment

Calculators and equipment such as rulers and protractors are not permitted - this competition is based on your brain power alone!

Other Information

There are no heats or finals, so participants can take materials back to their schools and use them to enrich learning in the classroom.

Student reviews for previous servings of Maths Feast:
"The best round was the relay, I enjoyed the pace and structure of it!"
"Four in a row was fun and fast paced. Had to work together and rely on teammates."
"All the rounds were enjoyable and challenging."

Eligibility

Year 10 students only, organised into groups of four. Each team must be accompanied by a teacher or teaching assistant. Schools entering multiple teams must bring one responsible adult per team; however, in the case of the additional teams, this could be sixth former.

You should not bring any student who took part in a maths feast this year - it would spoil all the fun for the students.

To request places, please contact James (details on the right).

Cost

This event is FREE.
