Mathematical Challenge

Mathematical Challenge is a problem-solving competition for individual pupils in Scottish secondary schools and upper primary schools (mainly P7). The competition began in Session 1976-77, following an initiative by the SMC Chairman of the time, Professor E.M. Patterson. The aim is to promote mathematics as a source of interest and pleasurable achievement.
