Pupils across Scotland answered an amazing 16,827,720 questions during our Scotland-wide contest for Maths Week Scotland! Well done to everyone who took part!
It was great to see 4900 teams across 860 schools getting involved and having fun with maths.
Huge congratulations to the winning team at Woodmuir Primary! They came top with an average accuracy score of 94.3%. We were delighted to join them at Holyrood, where Deputy First Minister John Swinney presented their special trophy.
Commenting on behalf of Woodmuir Primary School, Head Teacher Nicola Hamilton said:
“Our Primary 7 pupils are absolutely delighted to have won the Sumdog maths contest. For some of them to get the opportunity to come along to the Scottish Parliament to be presented with their trophy by Mr Swinney is particularly special. They really enjoyed the experience of working together as a class. Considering how many pupils, classes and schools across Scotland took part, it’s a fantastic achievement for them to have won this trophy. We are really proud of them.”
We can’t wait to get involved in Maths Week Scotland again in 2018!
