Dream first in world maths test

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A PUPIL at Gay­hurst School is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter beat­ing 30,000 chil­dren to come first in a world­wide maths chal­lenge.

Ai­den Ga­jd­har, along with his class­mates, took part in the su­perT­matik On­line Men­tal Math Com­pe­ti­tion, in which 200,000 pupils from more than 20 dif­fer­ent coun­tries com­peted, and each child who en­tered was up against oth­ers in the same age group.

It took place at school and Ai­den’s friends, James Gow­ers and Tarun Eapen, both came sixth in their re­spec­tive age groups.

Ai­den said: “I had a feel­ing I would be place quite high up but I didn’t dream I’d come first.” He puts his amaz­ing math­e­mat­i­cal abil­ity down to his dad who Ai­den says also loves maths.

Mr Whi­taker, head of maths, said: “This is an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment for all three boys and Ai­den’s win is truly out­stand­ing. We are very proud of him here at Gay­hurst.”
