Every year every school in Scotland has an option to participate in the Scottish math challenge spread across the months there is three sets of questions some being harder than others. There are three rewards: Bronze, Silver and Gold. to earn these rewards you need points. Points are collected by getting correct answers and good working out.
In Port Ellen the previous record in the school was one point of gold (set by my sister) but this year I bet that record with getting a gold then i got to go away to get the award.
That means this year had to go away to Glasgow university, we got lost a few times in the car park finding the university and any where else we went.
The awards where great they would pull up a schools name on the board then the students from the school came down but of course there was a math challenge it was pretty easy though. The presenter also pulled up on the board funny answers to the questions that included people who drew or wrote funny things. He even had a little segment where you had to guess where Islay was. I went up got my award got a envelope holding all the bronzes from my school got my mug and sat down.
It was a fun experience and I enjoyed it mostly.
