“Who Wants to Be a Mathematician” is a national high school competition held annually in America, involving more than two thousand students. Back in January 2016, Good Thinking’s Simon Singh was lucky enough to attend the final in Seattle, and in autumn 2016 we worked with Mike Breen, the AMS and Matt Parker to run a UK version of the competition. In 2017 and 2018 we ran the competition again, with our UK winners attending the international finals in California and Baltimore.
The UK qualifying for the 2019 competition has now closed. The competition will return in 2020, and will be open to students who live or who study in the UK and hold a UK passport. If you are interested in taking part, you can contact us to be added to the WWTBAM mailing list.
