Maths Competitions

Welcome to the Lucan Community College Monthly Maths Competition. Each month the school will post a new maths puzzle for students to solve. There will be a variety of ways to solve the problem as it is designed to promote “critical thinking” for our students.

The competition is open to all students attending Lucan Community College only. Students must submit their answer (with full explanation as to how you got the answer) in the competition entry box in the front hall.

There will be two €15 One 4 All vouchers for winning students. One voucher for Junior Cycle Students (1st to 3rd year) and one voucher for Senior Cycle Students (4th to 6th year). The winning students will also receive a certificate stating that they are the the winner for a particular month.

In the event of more than two correct answers from Junior and Senior Cycle, random selection will apply. This decision is final.

The parents of winning students will be contacted to inform them that their son/daughter has won the challenge for a particular month.

Each month’s problem will be posted below, please click on the relevant link below.
