Open Challenge 2021

Open Challenge '21 Question Paper can be downloaded here OpenChallenge_2021_Questions.pdf

The Open Challenge Competition is open until 19 March.

The topic for 2021 is Nature

This year, due to the COVID-19 lockdown, we have extended the deadline for submitting entries to 19 March. This change is reflected on the paper which is downloadable from this page (but not in the paper copies sent to schools which were printed before Christmas).

If it is difficult for schools to post entries, they can encourage their pupils to send in their entries individually. All entries must clearly show their name, school name and school postcode. If sending them in individually, a maths teacherís contact name and email address would also be useful. Full details can be found on the Question Paper.

There will be no Open Challenge prizegiving evening in the University of Liverpool this year. We are planning to organise an evening of online activities to replace this. This does not affect any arrangements being made in respect of MEM Senior Challenge and MEM Challenge prize evenings.

We are pleased to acknowledge generous financial help received from W. H. Smith Promotions Ltd.
