Last term several teams of sixth form mathematicians took part in the Ritangle competition, attempting to solve all 25 problems to arrive at one final answer. Ritangle is a free maths competition aimed at teams of sixth form/college students running over approximately 10 weeks in the Autumn term. It’s made up of around 24 ‘first round’ questions, released daily on weekdays, which unlock information necessary to solve the final multi-part question. The problems were released throughout October and daily during most of November and the start of December. Congratulations to all who took part and to the team of Max Williams, Ashwin Tennant, Scott Yap, Alex Oldham and James Gibson for unlocking stage 3 of the final problem! Abingdon was one of only 37 schools who had teams achieving ‘unlock stage 3’.
