Live Online Year 10 Maths Feast

Essex/Suffolk - Online

Overview

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.

The Live Online Year 10 Maths Feast is organised by your local Area Coordinator as an alternative to the usual face to face event. The event will enable your team to participate remotely 'alongside' other schools in your area.

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.

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."

We are still running Maths Feasts, although due to COVID-19, they may look slightly different this year. If you sign up to a local live online Maths Feast you will have access to brilliant materials to enrich your students, which will support and embed the learning you are doing with them.

The live online/in-person Maths Feast uses the same material as the national online Maths Feast. Your students will not gain additional benefit from attending both types of Maths Feast.

Eligibility

We can support 1 or 2 teams per school.  The teams MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult who will mark your school’s work. We recommend that this is a Maths Teacher. If you would like more students to take part, we recommend you sign up for the national online Maths Feasts. The materials used for both events are the same, so students should only attend one.

Due to our funding arrangements with the DfE, priority will be given to applications from state-funded schools in England. Applications will open to Independent schools in early January.
