Updated – questions and answers now linked

Over the two nights 204 year 7 & 8 teams and 180 year 9 & 10 teams  from 93 schools took part in this years’ Mathex competitions. That’s a lot of young mathematicians.

Huge thanks to everyone behind the scenes and on the night that helped get the teams here and the Mathex Competition underway. A special thanks to Gillian Frankom-Burgess who was determined that our students got to be part of Mathex in this crazy year.


All teams competed furiously, their runners ensuring a quick turnaround of the questions.

Teams have 30 minutes to answer 20 questions.
