To mark the national event, which aims to showcase the involvement of maths in our everyday lives and enable people to engage with the subject in exciting new ways, pupils in the Senior Years added a range of special activities to their timetables.

Kicking things off, pupils in F1 and F2 were tasked with uncovering the answers to a series of maths questions, spread across different locations within the school, as part of a keenly-contested Maths Treasure Hunt.

Meanwhile, F3 pupils worked together in small groups to solve multiple problems in a House Maths Challenge that culminated in a fast-paced Maths Relay in which the youngsters raced around the room to deliver and fetch new questions as quickly as possible.

A number of year groups also took part in the Mangahigh.com online maths competition and took on the challenge of ‘Maths wi nae Borders’, a national contest in which the pupils tackled various maths problems (including one written and answered in Scots or Scots Gaelic), making use of Minecraft and wooden blocks to model solutions!
