MITIE, a ftse100 company, has assisted Grace Academy in the development of the MITIE Maths Challenge, a 10 hour project aimed at helping year 7 students see how maths skills are used every single day in the working world.

Last Thursday and Friday, the whole year group went on a site visit to Coleshill Manor Office Park to discuss client requirements for a Water Harvesting System.  They will be finishing off the project this week and preparing their presentations for later this month.

The Maths Challenge has allowed our students to look at how data analysis, averaging, scales, budgeting and conversions are applied in a practical and fun exercise which emulates the tender process of real businesses.
