King's Mathematicians Impress at Regional Tournament
King’s College pupils competed in the annual U18 Senior Maths Challenge held at Exmouth Community College last week.
The 1st IV team, consisting of Captain, Toby Vickers, Vice-Captain, Rudi Smith, Emily Knill and Sian Dennett, competed in a series of rounds designed to test their mathematical knowledge.
The team were required to solve complex problems using Euclidian geometrical theorems, as well as find the Cartesian coordinates of four digit primes in infinite integer lattice points.
Our mathematicians performed particularly well in the cross number and shuttle rounds, placing an impressive 5th out of 26 competing schools.
