CleverClogs questions will be published every week in a special section of NCE.
On each alternate week there will be five questions of roughly A level standard, each worth two marks. In between we will run special 'killer questions' worth five marks to sort the wheat from the chaff.
One week is allowed after NCE's publication date for participants to enter answers online. After this the correct answers are published on www. nceplus. co. uk.
CleverClogs 2005 will run over a single eight week term.
It will be possible to register at any point during any term, but of course the earlier you register, the more questions you will be able to answer.
New for 2005 Two additional dimensions have been added to give hope to the more numerically challenged and to spice things up for the maths whizzes:
1. Single, roughly GSCE standard, 'easy questions' will be posted alongside the A level standard group and a separate 'GSCE league' established alongside the main 'A level' league. Enter one competition or the other - not both!
2. Bonus marks will be awarded for every question answered correctly online before 10am on Saturday.
Three ways to take part 1. Just for fun, test your maths ability over coffee each week. See if any of your maths skills remain by checking the answers online later.
2. Compete for individual prizes. Register yourself at www. cleverclogs. com and see your score build up and your league position improve by answering the questions online.
3. Compete as a team. Register a team of three at www.cleverclogs. com and use your collective brain-power to answer the questions.
