What teachers and students say about the Maths Battles.

Teachers

Pupils at the RGS have really enjoyed maths battles and numbers grow week on week. The problems are fun and open questions give the boys further opportunity to work collaboratively outside of the classroom as well as potentially considering mathematics from a different perspective. It is defiantly something the boys look forward to on a Monday evening, the battles even more so.

I like the Maths Battles concept, and the challenging problems. The Maths Circles are a little repetitive; maybe two ideas per session would be more interesting. Maths Battles however are perfectly fine, and offer a great opportunity to us to give Maths Problems complex solutions.

I think that with more people, conversations are longer and more detailed, and more time to do work and focus individually [would improve the experience]. I love it, the best maths fun ever. So lucky to be here, challenging but fun.

I think it is very social and it is better than classroom work because of face-to-face conversation with more relaxed people.

It is fun to discuss, but many of the problems are very difficult.

I loved it, and the snacks were great! I would love to come again, and I wish to increase my skills. It was a great way to learn different ways to do things, from people my age and above, and seeing the solution that someone else got for a question is quite satisfying, and teaches a lot.

I really do think Maths Battles is fun and it definitely helps my maths skills especially later maths when it gets a lot harder. Also I think that this will help me with my explanations and my confidence in speaking to the class and this will be very important in later life.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Maths Battles. It was quite challenging and i found it very fun. I loved this opportunity and would gladly participate again.

The face to face conversation helped me understand better and I like the idea of extending your knowledge by relating to the targets of the session. Also I think it would be useful to see the solutions after solving.

The Maths Battle was an enjoyable experience due to the difficulty of the problems however some of the problems could be clearer as several loopholes could be found in them. I would like to participate in this opportunity again.
