Overview

Summer Snack is a fun educational challenge for Year 9 students which tests problem-solving and teamwork skills. It is based on this year’s Maths Feast. 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 we will celebrate good teamwork and for the winning team of each round.

Aims

  • Improve problem-solving skills using recreational maths

Who will benefit from attending?

Summer Snack is suitable to all higher achieving Year 9 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 Summer Snack every year to keep the challenge exciting. However, we promise that content will be familiar or accessible to most Year 9's and could include both recreational and more traditional maths problems.

For practice, suitabe resources and materials from previous Maths Feasts are available here
