Mad about Maths at Mayfield Community School
Students in Mayfield Community School had calculators, rulers and protractors in hand for Maths week. Fifth and sixth year students were eager to solve complex mathematical problems on an orienteering course using QR scanners.
An obstacle course, using arithmetic, proved popular with first year students in our super sports complex and second year students were very competitive in a maths ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’ quiz..
Third years enjoyed solving a variety of mathematical problems in a ‘Countdown’ special.
Maths games were played by students across the year groups each lunch-time during maths week and one lucky winner guessed correctly the number of sweets in the jar.
Maths coordinator Ms. O’ Sullivan praised students for their enthusiasm and said “our students can look forward to achieving excellent grades in Maths in the future. Maths week was a huge success and we are already looking forward to next year”.
School principal, Mr Kieran Golden said ” Maths week is a wonderful educational initiative and I am delighted that so many of our students participated. It is important to provide our students with new and exciting ways of learning”. He thanked the maths department for their ongoing hard work and commitment.
