Construction learners at Lewisham College participated in the Construction Maths Competition at the College's Deptford Bridge campus, organised to encourage learners to appreciate the importance of the subject within the construction industry.
The competition began with kinaesthetic maths demonstrations and an icebreaker maths quiz. The learners were also encouraged to compete against each other with a series of maths questions presented to them to select the competition's finalists.
During the event, the participants had an opportunity to test their knowledge and maths skills. Finally, they were all given awards and certificates for participating in the competition.
Maths competition winner Danny Bozek is studying Plumbing at the College's specialised campus in Deptford Bridge. He said: "I feel good to have won and received an award in the Construction Maths Competition.
“Good mathematical skills are essential in construction, as it helps us work accurately and precisely. The competition has been an excellent way for my peers and me to engage with maths outside the classroom. I enjoyed it and look forward to participating in future competitions."
