John-Paul Green, Head of Mathematics at BISS, is eager to sing the praises of his Year 6-8 students! “As a mathematics department, we take great pride in the accomplishments of all our students who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and progress throughout the academic year. However, we must give special recognition to the students who have earned a certificate in the prestigious UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge.”
The UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge is an annual competition designed to stimulate mathematical problem-solving abilities among students in Years 6, 7 and 8. The competition features a series of challenging multiple-choice questions, with topics ranging from number theory and algebra to geometry and statistics. The questions are designed to test students’ problem-solving skills and mathematical reasoning, and require creative and analytical thinking to solve.
Our Year 6, 7 and 8 students have achieved fantastic results this year, receiving record Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates, as well as Best in Year. We congratulate them on their hard work to achieve such fantastic results!
Additionally, we extend our congratulations to Year 8 student, Tianyi, for his outstanding performance. Not only did he receive a Gold certificate, but he was also the Best in School, and he has qualified for the prestigious Junior Mathematics Olympiad. This marks the first time a BISS student has been invited to the Olympiad. Tianyi’s well-deserved achievements are a testament to his passion for mathematics and unwavering commitment to learning.
We encourage all of our students to continue to push themselves, take on challenges, and strive for excellence in all aspects of their education. We believe that with the right mindset, support, and effort, every student can achieve their full potential and make a positive impact on the world.
