Somersfield wins maths contest

A team from Somersfield Academy has triumphed in an interschool maths competition.

The six-strong squad from the Devonshire school beat Saltus Grammar School into second place.

Mount St Agnes Academy and Warwick Academy came joint third, with Bermuda High School in fourth place.

Richard Cunningham, a maths teacher at Somersfield, which hosted the event, said it was “a fun event enjoyed by everyone”.

The Canadian Team Mathematics Contest, organised with help from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, was held on Wednesday.

Teams of six from grades M1 to M5 battled through 2½ hours for the individual, team and relay challenges in categories including algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus.

Somersfield's team, captained by M5 pupil Kate Tobin, included M4 students Aisling Homan, Gregg Mwangi and Thibaut Stefani, with Bella Crofts from M3 and Odin Heinz from M2.
