Pupils from an Aberdeen school had it all figured out to emerge as winners in a tough maths competition.
The primary 5C class at Heathryburn School won this year’s Sumdog competition after battling it out with another 174 classes.
The online competition run by Edinburgh-based educational firm Sumdog took place last month and saw 2,659 pupils taking part and answering 795,906 maths questions correctly.
And the budding Heathryburn mathematicians came up with 769 correct answers during the competition – 28 more than their nearest rivals and 30 more than last year’s winners.
Councillor John Wheeler, education operational delivery convener at the city council, said: “Fittingly, in a mathematics competition, it’s the numbers that show just how impressive the class’s achievement is.”
He added: “But quite apart from their obvious numerical talents, the pupils have demonstrated self-motivation, hard work and team effort and it’s important we recognise those qualities too.”
