St George’s College, Weybridge invited children from Years 5 and 6 at all local schools to take part in the November 2017 instalment of the SGC Maths Quest challenge.

Each Half Term, St George’s College provides a Maths problem for children from Years 5 and 6 to solve. All correct entries are displayed on the St George’s Weybridge website at www.stgeorgesweybridge.com

SGC Maths Quest 1: Solutions

Below are the correct solutions to the following problem:

The number 0-9 can be made using matches in digital form, see below, like you see on a clock or a calculator screen. By moving, or removing matches, we can change what is being displayed and hence change the calculations.

A big congratulations to the following students who found correct solutions to all four problems:

Micah, Aarash, Clelia - all Goldsworth Primary School

Shiwoo, Yuvan, Lucy, Charlie, Felix and Luca - all St George’s Junior School

A special mention must also go to Naia, from Upton House School, who was first to answer and Luke, from St George’s Junior School, who found both answers to Problem 4.

Well done to everyone who entered and look out for the next problem which will be arriving before Christmas!
