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.

Heats will be held in schools and universities in November and early December. Dates are set by local organisers, and the grand final is held in London in February.


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

Who will benefit from attending?
