ParallelNot a conventional competition, but to challenge your able mathematicians, try Parallel from Simon Singh. All materials and resources are completely free and teachers will have access to all the student scores from the Parallelograms which are automatically marked.

Students do earn points depending on their percentage score on each Parallelogram, which in turn earns mathematical badges. There will be prizes for schools and students linked to the badges in future. Keep an eye on Parallel for the latest news.
