A pupil from the Dragon School in Oxford has won Dauntsey’s annual Dodecahedron Competition. Fin Brickman took first prize in this highly respected maths competition, now in its 28th year. Second prize went to Robert Seabourne from Lavington School and Imogen Moorsom from Salisbury Cathedral School gained third place. The competition is designed to give the most able mathematicians aged 12 and under the opportunity to stretch and challenge themselves beyond their normal maths curriculum. More than one thousand candidates had completed the Preliminary Round in their own schools. A total of 33 finalists from 17 schools were selected to attend the Finals Day at Dauntsey’s. The Final included completing two mathematical investigations, a tough multiple-choice paper and, to round off the day, a ‘Maths Trail’ around the School site. Pete Mobbs, Head of Maths at Dauntsey’s, said: “The competition is all about getting pupils enthused about maths and the standard today was, as always, extremely high. Congratulations to all the finalists who joined us at Dauntsey’s and especially to the winner, Fin. He takes home the coveted Dodecahedron trophy to host at his school for a year, together with a plaque for him to keep.” For
