The First Mathematical Challenge (FMC) has been specifically created to give all pupils in Years 3 and 4 the opportunity to take part in a National Challenge.
The FMC has been created for all your pupils. It is our intention that mathematics is portrayed as enjoyable, exciting and engaging for younger pupils and the FMC should provide an entertaining yet educational ending to the school year.
The PMC is a nationwide challenge for pupils who want to get involved in some interesting and stimulating mathematics. Aimed at the top 60% of pupils in Years 5 and 6 England and Wales, P6 and P7 in Scotland, and Years 6 and 7 in Northern Ireland, the PMC is taken by tens of thousands of children each year.
