MEI (Mathematics in Education and Industry) and Tarquin Books are joining forces to offer an annual prize to post-16 maths students.
Entrants must design an electronic resource - e.g. Geogebra file, Excel spreadsheet, a video, etc. - that communicates the mathematical ideas needed to solve a practical problem of some kind. These mathematical ideas used should be relevant to A-Level Mathematics or Further Mathematics A-Level, or to some equivalent qualification. Your entry could be designed by you individually, or it could be a collaboration between a group of students.
Entries to the competition could also form the basis for an Extended Project Qualification.
The winner will receive books to the value of £100 and Tarquin Books will also donate £400 worth of books or materials to the winners’ school or college.
To register your interest in the competition, follow the Prizes link on the Tarquin website. The closing date for entries is 30 April 2012 and the winner will be announced by 31 May 2012. For further information email Andrew Griffin at Tarquin.
