Southwark College students recently put their maths skills to the ultimate test by competing in a Kahoot Maths Challenge organised by the College’s English and Maths department to provide a platform for students to showcase their maths skills in an exciting way. The challenge saw around 30 students from different courses participating either independently or in teams, enhancing their collaboration skills.
The students who participated in the challenge had a chance to compete for first, second and third place prizes, which added to the excitement and enthusiasm of the event. The challenge included questions on different aspects of maths, such as subtractions, additions, division, and multiplication. The students found it to be a great way to revise and refresh their knowledge of basic calculations, which they felt was helpful, especially with the exam season coming up.
The winners are:
First place Ayomide Oluwasegun Osibona and Thanh Thuy Nguyen
Second place Jhonny Ross and Thu Li
Third place Yehor Kurtsev and Yegor Cherkesov
Ayomide Osibona, Applied Science student, shared his experience of participating in the challenge. He said: "I was really pleased to take part in the Maths Challenge. It was a real Maths mix, and I think people forget simple calculations, so it's a really nice way of reminding us of what we've been taught. With exam season coming up, I felt that this was an exciting and interactive way of revising. I'm excited to participate in many more!"
Scott Peasey, Vice Principal of Southwark College, emphasised the College's commitment to ensuring that students enjoy their education. He said: "At Southwark College, we are committed to creating interactive initiatives that not only engage students but also demonstrate that learning can be fun.
“The Maths Challenge is a prime example of our dedication to providing an enjoyable learning experience for our students. We take immense pride in the success of the event and are thrilled with the outcome. We enthusiastically look forward to hosting many more such initiatives in the future, to support our students in succeeding in their studies and achieving their goals."
