Discover unknown strengths and weaknesses

After the challenge, students can check on their strong points with the GMC Review, giving them encouragement and actionable advice on how to improve their technique, as part of the GMC 5 Thinking Strategies. These skills can be used outside of math class too - with science, programming and computational thinking all benefiting from a strong footing in math fundamentals.

A great way to challenge your mathematical mind and see how you compare with other students all over the globe!
