Year 5 and 6 Maths Championships 2018

 

We were fielding a strong team this year with 5 out of our 6 mathematicians being part of last year’s winning Year 3 and 4 team. We were up against 7 other schools, Withymoor, Peters Hill, Gig Mill, Lapal, Northfield Road, Brockmoor and Greenfield primary schools.

It started with an old favourite, “Make 24”. The children were given 4 numbers and had to use all of the numbers to make 24. For instance, (15 - 1) + (11 - 3) = 24.
Can you do it with 22, 21, 12 and 3?
How about with 15, 15, 6 and 9?

The next round was called “Odd One Out”. You couldn’t have the lowest/highest number or odds/evens but had to work out which number out of a sequence of numbers was the odd one out.
64 is the odd one out in this sequence 27, 64, 125, 216, 243 because it is the only number not in the 3x table.
How about:
565, 8338, 777, 303, 9494

The 3rd round was “The Language Round”. Children were given a key word and the. A number of other words linked to that with gaps where most of the letters should be.
For instance with the word SYMMETRY, _ _ r _ _ _ would be mirror.
How about
_ _ _ p _ _ _ _ _ _ e (DEGREE)?

After a nice break of squash and biscuits we found out there were only 12 points between 1st and last place. With 36 possible points a round and 3 rounds left to go, the winner could be anybody!

Back into the competition with the “Brackets” round. Children were given a set of numbers with an answer and had to include brackets and operations so that the answer was correct.
So 12 6 3 = 30 would become 12 + (6 x 3) = 12 = 12 + 18 = 30
Can you do it with 24, 12 and 6 (and they have to stay in that order) and make:
-4
0.333
48
1728
216
8
6
12

Round 5 was “Codes” and it was all about numbers! They were given various ‘algebraic’ codes and asked to work out the phrase (e.g. 52W in a Y was 52 weeks in a year).
What do you think these could be:
52 C in a P Wj (clue: made up of 4 suits).
1440 M in a D (clue: 60in an H).
360 D in a Q (clue: squares, rectangles, trapeziums, etc.).
64 S on a C B (clue: black v white).
11 P in a F T (clue: a game of 2 halves).
206 B in a B (clue: if you break one you might need a plaster).
2 S to e S (clue: mine versus yours).
1 P in a P T (clue: you hear about these at Christmas)
N > D in an I F (clue: this is true when these are greater than 1 whole).
3 B in a T (clue: read all about it).

The final round was our favourite, “Countdown”. A target number was given along with up to 6 numbers that you could use to make that number.

Could you make 546 using these numbers:

1, 4, 5, 25, 50, 75

or 295 with:

4, 9, 25, 50, 75, 100

We started off well being the 2nd school to get the 1st target number exactly and 1st to get the 2nd and 3rd target numbers exactly.

There were still only 12 points between 1st and last place and 2 teams in 1st place.

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be this time - we were 1 point behind the two teams in joint first. Some of the questions were really hard and we were beaten on Round 5. Well done Roberts, a great effort but bad luck.
