Mathematical Association's Primary Mathematical Challenge

11th May 2001 at 01:00
Two years ago the Mathematical Association launched its first Primary Mathematical Challenge for primary pupils in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is a test of 25 multiple-choice problems, aimed at the top 60 per cent of pupils in English and Welsh schools Years 5 and 6, Scottish schools P6 and P7, and Years 6 and 7 in Northern Ireland.

Some 800 primary schools took part in the 2000 Challenge. The papers were marked by the schools' teachers and gold, silver and brone certificates awarded. High-scoring pupils took the PMC Finals Challenge at their school in February, with the completed papers marked at the Mathematical Association headquarters in Leicester. Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded.

For details of the 2001 Primary Mathematical Challenge or to register for a pack, which will be sent out in October, contact the Mathematical Association, 259 London Road, Leicester LE2 3BE. Tel: 0116 2210013. E-mail: office@m-a.
