National competition underway to improve maths skills during Maths Week England

Prizes to be awarded to winners in each category

To celebrate Maths Week England, from 9th to the 14th November, students from across the country are taking part in a national maths competition, the M-Fluencer Maths Week Quest.

Open for schools with students from any year group, this competition will help boost student engagement, improve attainment and help maintain maths performance in schools during Covid-19 bubble closures, as well as winning prizes for their school.

Participants will be tasked with completing a series of online maths challenges, with each challenge adding to the school’s total score. Amazon vouchers will be awarded to the top 10 schools and digital certificates will be awarded to students who achieve over 150 points.

All learning activities included in the competition are aligned to the national curriculum, supporting a national commitment to raising standards.

The competition, run by maths resource provider Mangahigh, is open to all schools across England, both existing users and non-users. Once registered for the competition, schools can also access Mangahigh’s maths resource free of charge.

Mohit Midha, CEO and co-founder of Mangahigh, said:

“Each student from early years to upper secondary school age can take part free of charge. The maths activities on Mangahigh are designed in a fun ‘game’ format to really engage the students and encourage them to return for more, while developing their conceptual knowledge of key maths topics.”
