Our world is full of repeating pattern and, from the frequency of music notes to the appearance of a snowflake, such patterns come in many different shapes and sizes. So, this year’s World Maths Day is examining patterns in squares and triangles. 

Ms Powell, our Subject Leader, Maths, explains: “All our young people are being sent our School’s challenge for World Maths Day, which asks them predict what will come next in our given patterns. Answers should be emailed to me by 4pm on Friday 5 March, with every correct answer entered into a prize draw to win an Amazon voucher.”
