MEI Maths Competition - Round 2
Following Round 1 of the MEI FE Maths Competition, students across a range of curriculum areas took part in Round 2 - the College Final on Friday 11 February.
Students competed in pairs to win trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, with all students receiving a certificate for participation. Within the College Final, students were entered into different categories, dependent on their existing level in Maths - the Funkies, the Ein2steins and Go Forth. For each category, the students had to complete a Tarsia puzzle, which is a dominoes-style puzzle, and a Kahoot quiz.
Life Skills - SEND students, Louis and Harry complete their Tarsia puzzle
The 1st and 2nd place winning pairs from each of the three categories will represent East Surrey College in Round 3 - the MEI FE Maths Cluster Final. This is where ESC will compete against 11 other colleges based in and around London, including Leyton College and Newham College amongst others.
