How the competition works
Maths Week Gloucestershire is open to all state schools in the county that have students in any of KS 2,3 and 4.
The competition will begin at 00:00 on Monday 22nd April 2013 and will end at Midnight on Sunday 28th April 2013
The competition will be run using the online educational maths site ‘Mangahigh’. Students and teachers will have their own unique login and can access the activities 24/7 from home or school.
Students gain points by achieving a level of competency in a particular activity. A Bronze medal (1 point) demonstrates a basic level of understanding, Silver (2 points) and Gold medals (3 points) stretch a students’ understanding further. All activities carry a Bronze, Silver and Gold medal. So students in KS2 trying ‘pictograms’ can actually compete on level terms with students in KS4 trying ‘trigonometry’
The school with the largest number of points after 7 days will be declared the winner. There will be a presentation of a trophy and certificates at 2:30pm on Wednesday 8th May by a player from Gloucester Rugby Club at the winning school.
Students and teachers will be able to see a leaderboard during the week that shows the top 10 schools and their own school’s position
