Mathématiques sans Frontières is an annual international mathematics competition for S4-S6 schoolchildren, centrally run by the Académie de Strasbourg since 1989. This interclass competition involves a number of mathematical puzzles where one of the puzzles is posed, and must be answered, in a foreign language. Each class should work as a team to tackle the puzzles in the allotted time (90 minutes).
December – January: Schools are invited to register for the competition, and a set of practice questions are emailed to each school.
We welcomed 43 entries from 23 different schools across Scotland (and one entry from a school in England) in 2020. The overall winner was Lochfield Academy Seniors. They will be awarded with a school visit from the Happy Puzzle Company during Maths Week Scotland 2020.
