In January, a team of A-Level maths students from New College Swindon, successfully completed the final stage of the national Ritangle Mathematics competition, led by the Mathematics Education Innovation.
The team spent 10 hard weeks answering questions and problem solving. When registration for the Ritangle competition opened in October 2023, New College Swindon A-Level maths students were up against five other teams.
The New College Swindon team, captained by Tom Kowalik, submitted correct answers to all the questions in the competition, leading them to their success in the final. Their solution to the challenging final question, on Jamboree Pairings, earned them a Commendable Team title and a mention on the competition website.
A-Level Maths Programme Lead, Cristina Pontet said: “This was a great opportunity for our A-Level maths students to showcase their passion for the subject, demonstrate excellent problem-solving skills as well as an ability to communicate effectively and to maintain focus under pressure.
"We are thrilled with the news and very proud of their achievement!”
