Avon Valley Student Named as a Winner in Maths Competition

A Year 9 student from The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College has recently been named as a winner in a national maths competition.

In the autumn term, Eleanor Warren, entered the Desmos Maths Art Competition organised by Mathematics Education Innovation, a charity committed to improving lives through advances in maths education. As part of the competition entrants used mathematic graphing software Desmos to create a piece of art with the theme ‘The World Around Us’.

When selecting winners, the competition’s judges considered creativity and originality, the entrant’s use of the maths and their interpretation of the theme. Eleanor’s art piece use mathematical equations and coordinates to plot each aspect of her work which showed a person struggling to hold the Earth back as it headed towards industrial chimneys. Eleanor was named as one of the winner’s in the Year 8-9 category, as a winner Eleanor was sent a certificate and t-shirt, and her artwork will feature in the school’s newsletter.

Headteacher, Alison Davies said, “It is lovely to see that a number of students entered the competition, putting their maths skills to good use, and I am really pleased to see that Eleanor was named as one of the competition’s winners. The piece of art created by Eleanor is very detailed and I hope she is proud of her achievement.”
