To celebrate the launch of the new Maths GYM study hubs at Huddersfield New College, the Maths department is inviting students to complete some festive mathematical brain teasers for a chance to win an Amazon voucher.

The College offers a range of courses including A Level Mathematics, Further Maths and GCSE Maths for students who want to improve their GCSE result. The College has just announced it will be introducing AS Further Maths for September 2019 entry. As part of new investment in the Maths department, students can now access the Maths GYM or the ‘Grow Your Maths’ areas which provide a space for students to study and receive support and inspiration.

To celebrate the arrival of the Maths GYM hubs, the Maths department is releasing two puzzles each week over the next two weeks. Students can email in their solutions, and all correct answers will be placed into a prize draw to win a £10 Amazon voucher. The puzzles can be accessed below.  

Mark Webber, Head of Mathematics comments: “The Maths GYM study hubs are a great place for our students to ‘grow their Maths’ and enjoy developing their skills and knowledge, either with the support of our staff or simply by completing the activities available. Our festive puzzles provide a fun and competitive way for students to put their skills and knowledge to the test, and we expect there to be lots of discussion and debate across College as the puzzles are not as simple as they seem!”
