Year 7 Maths Puzzle Day at Downe House

On a frosty November morning, 12 Year 7 boys left Elstree to go to Downe House for the Maths Challenge. This was no ordinary maths challenge – it was a puzzle challenge!

Our first task was a balance and teamwork one. We had to balance several penguins on a moving ice-berg – it was really fun!  Next we completed some other challenges, which included making a pipe that had no entrances and making squares out of different shapes.  It was a great day.
