Winning poster design is as easy as Pi for Perse mathematicians
11 Feb 2019
A Pi-themed design helped The Perse team to achieve success in the poster competition at the Senior Team Maths Challenge national finals in London.
Each team had to produce a poster on the subject ‘how I wish I could calculate Pi’. Perse representatives Pip Jackson, Yao-Chih Kuo (both Upper Sixth), Hari Prasad and Vikram Singh (both Lower Sixth) beat a field of 79 entries to take the honours.
Teams were required to research the topic in advance and combine that information with answers to three questions posed on the day, with judges deciding the winner based on mathematical content and visual impact.
The poster will now be produced professionally and sent to all schools involved with the UK Mathematics Trust along with other promotional materials.
