To celebrate World Maths Day 2020, Hastings Adventure Golf is offering local pupils the chance to scoop rewards for their school.
For this third year running the crazy golf attraction, that celebrates its 45th anniversary this year, is promoting the key role maths plays in everyday life. This year it has devised a maths puzzle for teachers to challenge their pupils. All correct answers will be entered into a draw and three winning schools will receive a share of 45 free games of crazy golf.
Councillor Bob Standley Lead member Education and ISEND at East Sussex County Council said: “A secure understanding of maths is a vital skill and the importance of demonstrating to pupils the practical applications of the subject cannot be overestimated. I am delighted to support Hastings Adventure Golf’s campaign for World Maths Day and encourage schools and pupils across the county to enter.”
Kate Richards, a former maths teacher and manager of Hastings Adventure Golf, added: “This is a great way of proving that maths is fun. We’ve developed a maths puzzle for pupils to solve and as we’re also celebrating our 45th anniversary we’re giving away 45 school reward tickets. So get puzzling and scoop lots of rewards for your school.”
The maths puzzle, that uses a golf scorecard, is available to download from https://www.hastingsadventuregolf.com/mathsday.asp There are 45 individual reward tickets up for grabs – 15 for each of three winning schools. The tickets, to be shared among pupils as school rewards, can be redeemed for free rounds of crazy golf at the famous attraction.
All schools in Sussex can enter. Entries and workings should be emailed to: email@example.com or posted to: Hastings Adventure Golf, World Maths Day 2020, 551 The Ridge, Hastings TN37 7PT by March 31, 2020. Winning schools will be contacted by Hastings Adventure Golf with mascot Caddy Bear tee’d up to present the rewards to the successful schools. World Maths Day is officially celebrated on March 4.
