Enfield Maths Competition

Four of us competed in a maths competition against 28 other schools. There were 4 heats and there were 7 schools in each heat. Our heat was held in Wilbury Primary School.

We started off with 3 rounds of mental maths and we were given 30 seconds to work each question out. Then we had 2 tasks and we worked together and had 20 minutes for each task. We were given different facts and clues and we had to work out the answer. The last round was an Einstein task. We were given a brain break between each round.

At the end we waited for the results and we came second out of the 7 schools in our heat. We go through to the finals which are taking place tomorrow.
