The Mathematical Association
Project for students
The Primary Mathematics Challenge (PMC) is a national mathematics challenge for upper primary children. Packs of challenge papers are purchased by schools. The aim is to interest and motivate young mathematicians. Certificates are provided for all who enter. The challenge takes place every November, with the ‘Bonus Round’ the following February. The PMC provides opportunities for primary pupils to solve maths problems related to their experiences. It develops thinking skills and a creative approach to solving maths problems. Teachers arrange for pupils to take the challenge (multiple-choice paper) any time in November. Marks, schemes, follow-up ideas and certificates are provided.
