A team of 4 young mathematicians represented Hereford Sixth Form College at this year’s annual UK Mathematics Trust Senior Team Mathematics Challenge, held on the 12th November 2019.  The West Midlands regional final was held at Malvern College and consisted of three rounds combining high-end mathematical thinking, number manipulation and mental arithmetic under an immense time pressure.

Hereford Sixth Form College placed ninth in this year’s competition, and the team comprised of Catie Sheridan, Bevis Drury, Lydon Strangeway and Esme Lang.

Dr Ali Everett, Mathematics Tutor said, “I am very proud of how the team did.  We were burdened with transport issues due to adverse weather on the way there and the competition was tough. However, the team enjoyed themselves and gained good experience with difficult mathematical problems.”
