UTC students’ success at 2019 Maths Feast - UTC Leeds

21st March 2019

On Tuesday 19th March, eight students from UTC Leeds competed in the Advanced Maths Support Trust’s ‘Maths Feast’, hosted at Horbury Academy in Wakefield.

Maths Feast is a fun, educational challenge for Year 10 students, testing problem solving and teamwork skills. The competition sees teams of four students from different schools working together through several rounds of maths-based problems. Dependent on the problem, these can be completed individually, in pairs, or as a full team. Head Girl, Ellie Bamfield, accompanied the trip and acted as a scorer for the other schools’ teams.

The two teams representing UTC Leeds worked studiously throughout the competition, using their resilience and teamwork skills through some complex problem solving; the competition included a topic taught to Further Maths A-Level students – Minimum Spanning Trees.

UTC Leeds held their own among stiff competition, winning three out of the four rounds. The first UTC Leeds team, comprised of Callum Inwood, Harriet Lambert, Lars Rohle and Millie Williamson, won the overall competition, scoring a total of 89/121 and beating their nearest rivals by 14 points! The second team, Dan Brown, Olivia Brown, Jamie Jenkins and Theo Jones, finished 4th, just shy of the podium.

All members of UTC Leeds did themselves, their college, and their teachers proud, and showed the strengths of the college and its employability-driven values.
