British Mathematical Olympiad

News: In memoriam Jacqui Lewis 1948–2010 (5 December 2010)

Jacqui Lewis has died in her sleep, in Portugal.

Jacqui became involved with running Royal Institution Maths Masterclasses in South-West England in 1991 when she was a teacher at Wootton Bassett School.

After she moved to Portugal, she became progressively more involved in UKMT, first through Team Maths Challenge, and then as an Observer, looking after the pastoral side of things for the UK team, and sometimes for other teams, at various Balkan Mathematical Olympiads, the Romanian Master of Mathematics and International Mathematical Olympiads.

Her warmth and concern for the comfort and happiness of the students was quite remarkable.
