#### Maths Primary Event

Year 5 students from Whitleigh Community Primary School took part in sessions on using multiplication skills to solve various problems at Sir John Hunt this January. The students were asked to investigate ideas such as whether square number always, sometimes or never have even numbers of factors and whether when you multiply any number by nine the sum of the answers digits is always a multiple of nine. The students rose to the challenge and enjoyed making use of their maths to justify their answers.Mr Yalden
