A-maze-ing Mathematics challenge for students on Manchester trip 


Students had an ‘a-maze-ing’ time when they put their Mathematics skills to the test during a challenging visit to Manchester Metropolitan University.

A group of Year 10 students travelled to the university to take part in an escape room challenge based on popular TV show, The Crystal Maze.

As part of the visit, they worked in teams to complete a series of challenges which involved using an element of logic or Maths, including cracking codes, a dance mat sum challenge and puzzles.

Miss L Green, Lead Practitioner for Mathematics, said: “The group had a fantastic time working together to put their Mathematics knowledge to the test to ‘escape’ various rooms, which had been designed and built by Manchester Metropolitan University students.”

After completing the escape room challenge, students then visited the National Football Museum to get an insight into the many different ways Mathematics is used in football.
