Richard Stakes, AC for Shropshire, Staffordshire, Telford and Wrekin
On 6 March 2019, Keele University again hosted a Year 10 Maths Feast in the splendid surroundings of the ballroom at Keele Hall. 21 teams of four Year 10 pupils from 14 local schools worked together to solve mathematical problems and challenges across four rounds.
The teams were very evenly matched and many of them gained certificates for high scoring rounds, but perhaps the most successful team of the morning was from Alsager School, who were awarded a certificate for every round. The teams seemed to enjoy the questions almost as much as they devoured the biscuits on offer!
