During November, 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.
No knowledge beyond GCSE Mathematics is required for the heats, and there will be a focus on developing problem-solving skills.
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.
