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.

For further details, please visit the Mathematical Challenge website. There is also an archive of past questions and solutions.

The SMC are very grateful to the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation for their continued and generous support for the Mathematical Challenge.
