In partnership with Imperial College London, we're introducing cZeus School-League Competitions.

We have listened to Teachers' feedback and have released a separate App called cZeus School League on iOS, Android, Windows or macOS platforms. This school friendly app will not have any advertisements, in-app purchases or any social media functionality. We are offering this app free for our first series of cZeus League competitions.

Important Notice: Due to events and delays outside our control, and also due to the general effects of the current outbreak of coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the first series of Imperial College London competitions to a later date. Meanwhile, we recommend pupils to continue practising in the Training Camp and also take part in competitions set up by their teachers and the weekly/monthly public competitions and to monitor their progress. We will announce the new dates for the UK Inter-school competition and the Live Final at the Imperial College London as soon as possible. We are sure you will be all super-ready by then to enter the first series of these School League Completions.

How can cZeus benefit developing mathematical skills?

  • Ignite and accelerate math enthusiasm through games

  • Enhances the current maths curriculum

  • Effectively exercises logic, mental arithmetic, mathematical fluency and problem-solving skills.

By solving cZeus puzzles, students will be learning algebraic logic, without even knowing about algebra.

cZeus facilitates the traditional teaching of handling non-linear equations.

Easy cZeus grids are great for practising times tables at various ranges (9 Times Table), and can also be played on paper.

cZeus Alignment with UK Maths Curriculum Goals

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils: **

cZeus Puzzles useful for :

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

cZeus & UK Maths Curriculum

cZeus puzzles directly exercise the yellow subjects below and also build a foundation for the topics in light yellow.
