Last year we reported Castelli students’ success in the Bocconi University maths competition. Recently we had a breakdown of the results and were delighted to learn that our students performance is well above average. A total of 130,000 students from over 1,800 schools participated in the Bocconi University Maths competition. Castelli students performed 28 percentage points above average for their age group in an international competition. During the competition students were challenged to solve complex mathematical problems against the clock.
Castelli International’s approach to maths is clearly successful – not only do we ensure students are rigorously prepared with regular mental challenges, careful explanations and plntly of practice, we ensure maths is fun and engaging too.
Our congratulations go to the students who participated, and to the teaching staff from elementary through to middle school, who ensure that maths is taught effectively and progressively in a state of the art, bilingual, international programme.
