Maths Department Year 8 Countdown Competition

By 20 October 2022No Comments

Following the heats last week (see Newsletter for more details), the Year 8 class champions (pictured above) competed against each other on Tuesday to become the overall Countdown Champion.

There were 3 rounds, based on the TV gameshow: the numbers game, where they used their arithmetic skills to get as close as possible to a random 3-digit number; a word round, where they had to make the longest word from 9 random letters; and the Conundrum, where they had to solve a 9-letter anagram.

As expected, all competed brilliantly and the result was very close, but there could only be one winner… Congratulations to Maya A!
