Maths Miniatures 2019
In 2020 the Maths Miniatures competition did not go ahead due to the coronavirus restrictions.
In 2019 we collaborated with the University of Leeds, United Kingdom Mathematics Trust and IMO2019 Ltd to run our annual short film competition for schools. The theme was Mathematics in Sport and students aged 11-18 across the UK were challenged to work in small teams to produce a 3 minute video exploring this topic and communicating the mathematics involved. We had a great deal of interest and 91 schools submitted videos.
Once again, the standard was very high and two rounds of judging were needed to identify a winner. Our judges first produced a longlist of 47 entries, then a shortlist of the highest-scoring seven videos were scored again by our judging panel.
First prize went to the team from Claires Court Schools – The College, Berkshire.
Six further teams were shortlisted for first prize. They were, in alphabetical order: Colfe’s School, Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Boys, Lambrook School, Mary Hare School, St Benedict’s Upper School, and Worle Community School.

Many congratulations to all participants and thanks to all the schools and teachers for their support.
