Last month, three 5B students and four other grade 5 students took the UK Maths challenge. The UK Maths challenge is a problem solving test given to students in the UK and around the world. YIS Grade 6 and grade 7 students all take the mathematics test, and it is an option for grade 5.
Shion, YuJin, and Shoichi rose to the challenge this year, and all three received awards. Shion received a silver award, YuJin received a bronze award, and Shoichi received a gold award, receiving the most points of anyone in grades 5-7. All students scored in the top 35% of all grade 6 and 7 students.
It’s a challenging test, and congratulations to Shion, YuJin and Shoichi!
