Team Maths Challenges are Back!

Team Maths Challenges are Back!

The Team Maths Challenges 2024 is a soft launch back to the standard operations of events.

Our aim is to leverage this year’s Team Maths Challenges (TMC) events as a means of quality assurance and as a platform to establish robust foundations for future events.

In early March, a select group of volunteers (pictured above) from the Trust’s TMC got together in Birmingham. Together with members of the TMC Executive Committee, they dedicated a development day to trial-run the fresh content intended for this year’s events.

The TMC is now underway with 21 schools hosting TMC events across the UK. The Challenges give students the opportunity to tackle a variety of engaging mathematical activities while developing teamwork and communication skills.

The Challenges are aimed at students from Year 8 and 9 from schools and colleges based in the UK. All entries must be made by registered UKMT centres, not individual students or their parents. Each team consists of four students, with a maximum of two students from
Year 9. Only one team from each centre may be entered into the TMC.

The registration fee per team is £40. As a charity, we do not make a profit from entry fees. We spend all the money we raise on advancing the education of young people in maths.

Teams compete against each other in four rounds – The Group, The Crossnumber, The Shuttle and The Relay. Visit the TMC page to find a TMC venue near you.
