Live Online Year 8/9 Inter-School Maths Competition

Online

Overview

AMSP East Midlands are hosting an Online Maths Competition for Year 8/9 students across the region.

Students will work in teams of 2, 3 or 4, before submitting their answers online. Each team will need a computer, tablet or phone.

This is a LIVE event - questions will be streamed into the classroom, answers will be checked and scores given after each question. This is a fantastic opportunity for your students to compete against each other, and against teams from other schools in the region.

Who will benefit from attending?

This event is aimed at Year 8/9 students.

The event is designed so that you can run it with an entire class, split into teams of 2, 3 or 4 students. Each team needs a computer, tablet or phone.

You will need to supervise the class, but we are not asking you to mark answers or submit marks.
