And in the quarterfinals, they pipped Martin Primary to the post,

0:00:570:01:01

0:01:010:01:03

with their lightning reactions in the buzzer round.

0:01:030:01:06

Nabil, welcome.

Now, tell me, which subject do you hope will come up in this semifinal,

0:01:070:01:10

-Nabil?

0:01:270:01:30

-Yes.

-Eleftheria, how are you?

-Good.

0:01:300:01:33

You don't sound very sure about that.

0:01:330:01:35

I want you to say "good,"

0:01:350:01:37

like the captain of a team who's in the semifinals of Top Class

0:01:370:01:41

would say it. How are you feeling?

0:01:410:01:42

CLEARS THROAT

0:01:420:01:44

-Good!

-Very good! That's what I wanted.

0:01:440:01:47

And Laura, when I said, "Well done, you're in the semifinal,"

0:01:470:01:51

-how did that feel?

-I didn't believe you.

0:01:510:01:53

You didn't believe me? I always tell the truth!

0:02:290:02:32

-You've been a great captain.

-Thank you.

0:02:320:02:34

Because what you've done is often delegate.

0:02:340:02:36

-Are you going to change anything up?

-Probably not.

0:02:360:02:39

Probably not. Keep going. Tomos, are you ready to go?

Absolutely right.

0:05:350:05:38

Nixon, Roosevelt and Lincoln are all US Presidents,

0:05:380:05:42

and you avoided those. Well done to both teams.

0:05:420:05:45

Great performance, and you've all got some points on the board.

0:05:450:05:48

Give them a round of applause.

0:05:480:05:50

APPLAUSE

0:05:500:05:52

OK, teams. From now on, throughout the game,

0:05:520:05:55

you'll get a chance to take control of each subject.

0:05:550:05:58

Here is your first control question.

0:05:580:06:01

The subject is...

0:06:010:06:02

If I start in Oslo, and travel directly east in a straight line,

0:06:060:06:12

which other country will I come to first?

0:06:120:06:14

-Ridwan.

-Sweden.

0:06:140:06:16

Correct answer. Well done, Glenfrome.

0:06:160:06:17

You have control of the game. APPLAUSE

0:06:170:06:21

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject of finding the flags.

0:06:210:06:26

Question one.

0:06:260:06:28

You're looking for the national flag of the Netherlands.

0:06:280:06:31

-It's not C.

-Because in A, she's done it the other way round

0:06:310:06:34

-and in C, she's on...

-You want to say B?

-Yeah.

0:06:340:06:37

-B.

-JJ, what's your answer? B?

0:06:370:06:41

It is. Well done. Second question.

0:06:410:06:44

Which one of these flags is the national flag of Germany?

0:06:440:06:48

-C.

-I don't know.

-It's C. C.

0:06:480:06:49

Is it A, B, or C?

0:06:490:06:51

-C.

-Yes.

0:06:510:06:53

-JJ.

-C.

0:06:530:06:55

Is it C?

0:06:550:06:57

It is. Well done. Which is the national flag of Ireland?

0:06:570:07:02

-Ivory Coast is A...

-Yeah.

-So it's B.

0:07:020:07:07

-So B, yeah?

-C is made up.

0:07:070:07:09

-OK. B.

-Is that the right answer?

0:07:090:07:11

It is. Well done, and finally, which is the national flag of France?

0:07:120:07:18

A, B, or C?

0:07:180:07:20

-C.

-C.

0:07:200:07:23

It is. Well done. Five points to Glenfrome.

0:07:240:07:26

Well done! APPLAUSE

0:07:260:07:28

I can tell you, at the end of that round, the points are,

0:07:300:07:33

Hollymount have 7, Glenfrome have 14 points.

0:07:330:07:36

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:07:360:07:38

The next subject is...

0:07:400:07:42

Here is your control question.

0:07:460:07:48

If a Roman soldier is XXV years old,

0:07:480:07:53

how old would he be in our number system?

0:07:530:07:55

-Nabil.

-30.

0:07:550:07:56

No, that's not right. Anyone want to buzz in?

0:07:560:07:58

-Noah?

-25.

0:07:580:08:00

25. That's the right answer.

0:08:000:08:02

Well done, Glenfrome, well done. APPLAUSE

0:08:020:08:04

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject of averages.

0:08:070:08:11

On the left of the screen are the ages of five teachers.

0:08:110:08:14

What is the median age of these teachers?

0:08:140:08:18

28. I think it's 28.

0:08:190:08:22

It's 28.

0:08:240:08:26

We think it's 28.

0:08:260:08:28

28. Is that the right answer?

0:08:280:08:29

It is. Well done. The median is the number that falls in the middle

0:08:310:08:34

if the whole set is arranged in numerical order.

0:08:340:08:37

Secondly, what is the mode age of these teachers?

0:08:370:08:42

So that would be...

0:08:420:08:43

Add them together, divide it by five.

0:08:430:08:46

I've got 30.

0:08:480:08:51

Yeah, we'll go for 30.

0:08:520:08:53

-30.

-30. Is that the right answer?

0:08:530:08:56

No, the answer's 35.

0:08:570:08:58

The mode is the value that occurs most often.

0:08:580:09:01

Thirdly, what is the mean age of these teachers?

0:09:030:09:06

-The sum we just did, so 30?

-30, yeah.

0:09:060:09:09

-JJ.

-30.

-30. Is that the right answer?

0:09:090:09:12

It is. Well done. The mean is when you add together all of the ages

0:09:140:09:17

and divide by the number of teachers.

0:09:170:09:19

Finally, what is the range of these teachers' ages?

0:09:190:09:23

25 - 35.

0:09:230:09:25

So would it be 10?

0:09:250:09:26

-10. Yeah.

-JJ.

-10.

0:09:260:09:29

It is. Well done. The range is the difference between the

0:09:290:09:32

highest number and the lowest number. Well done.

0:09:320:09:34

You got four points in that round, Glenfrome.

0:09:340:09:36

Really well done. APPLAUSE

0:09:360:09:38

I can tell you at the end of that round, the scores are

0:09:400:09:43

Hollymount have 7, Glenfrome have 18 points.

0:09:430:09:45

Brilliantly done. APPLAUSE

0:09:450:09:47

The next subject is...

0:09:500:09:52

Here is your control question.

0:09:560:09:58

What name beginning with J is given to the geological period

0:09:590:10:03

right after the Tri...?

0:10:030:10:06

-Nabil.

-Jurassic.

0:10:060:10:07

It's the right answer. Well done, Nabil. Well done.

0:10:070:10:10

APPLAUSE

0:10:100:10:12

What name beginning with J is given to the geological period

0:10:120:10:15

right after the Triassic period? It is indeed Jurassic.

0:10:150:10:19

Here are the rest of your questions, on the subject of inventors.

0:10:190:10:24

First question.

0:10:240:10:26

Tim Berners-Lee is famous for which of these inventions?

0:10:260:10:29

It's definitely not light bulb, because Thomas Edison...

0:10:290:10:32

-I think it's the World Wide Web.

-I think it's the World Wide Web.

0:10:320:10:35

Eleftheria, do you have an answer for me?

0:10:350:10:37

-The World Wide Web.

-Is that the right answer?

0:10:370:10:40

It is. Second question.

0:10:410:10:44

Rosalind Franklin, James Watson and Francis Crick

0:10:440:10:49

made which of these discoveries?

0:10:490:10:51

-It can't be oxygen.

-It's not DNA.

-How can't it be oxygen?

0:10:510:10:55

-No, no, no. Hang on, look.

-How can you discover oxygen?

0:10:550:10:58

-It could be...

-Look.

-They're looking at DNA.

0:10:580:11:01

-So it's not the speed of light. I think it's DNA.

-Oh, yeah.

0:11:010:11:05

Eleftheria, do you have an answer for me?

0:11:050:11:07

-DNA.

-Is that right?

0:11:070:11:09

It is. Well done. Thirdly,

0:11:090:11:12

the Wright brothers are best known for making the first what?

0:11:120:11:16

-Powered air flight.

-Powered air flight, definitely.

0:11:200:11:22

-Eleftheria?

-Powered air flight.

0:11:220:11:24

Is that right?

0:11:240:11:26

It is. Well done, and finally,

0:11:260:11:27

what is Alexander Fleming known for discovering?

0:11:270:11:32

-Penicillin.

-Yeah.

-I think it's penicillin.

-Yeah.

0:11:330:11:36

-What's your answer?

-Penicillin.

0:11:360:11:39

Is that right?

0:11:390:11:40

It is. Well done. Five points, Hollymount!

0:11:400:11:43

APPLAUSE

0:11:430:11:45

Brilliant!

0:11:450:11:46

Well, it's all about getting control of the game and I can tell you,

0:11:470:11:50

Hollymount have 12, Glenfrome have 18 points.

0:11:500:11:53

Well done! APPLAUSE

0:11:530:11:55

Well, teams, it's my favourite super duper round of Top Class.

0:11:570:12:02

It's time to Test The Teacher.

0:12:020:12:04

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:12:040:12:07

Hollymount, remind us, who have you brought with you?

0:12:080:12:12

-Miss Darwin.

-Now, Miss Darwin scored three points in the heats,

0:12:120:12:17

five in the quarterfinals.

0:12:170:12:20

Eleftheria, do you think she is going to do even better

0:12:200:12:23

-in the semifinals?

-We think it might be seven, but I'm hoping for more.

0:12:230:12:27

Laura, do you have confidence in Miss Darwin?

0:12:270:12:30

-Definitely.

-Aryan?

0:12:300:12:32

It's like in a sequence - three, five, seven.

0:12:320:12:35

-Right. Nabil? Confident?

-Yeah.

0:12:350:12:38

Brilliant. Well, Hollymount, it's time to Test The Teacher.

0:12:380:12:40

Bring in Miss Darwin.

0:12:400:12:42

APPLAUSE

0:12:420:12:45

Now, there seems to be a suggestion from at least one of the members

0:12:530:12:56

of your team that you're working in a three, five, seven...

0:12:560:13:00

I'm going for the prime numbers, yeah.

0:13:000:13:02

You're going for the prime numbers!

0:13:020:13:03

Oh, my goodness. She even uses maths when she's talking to me.

0:13:030:13:06

Well, Miss Darwin, you have 60 seconds on the clock,

0:13:060:13:10

to answer as many questions as you can.

0:13:100:13:12

Start the clock.

0:13:120:13:13

What does the online abbreviation HBTU stand for?

0:13:130:13:17

-Pass.

-Happy birthday to you.

0:13:180:13:20

In the 2014 film Annie,

0:13:200:13:22

what is the name of the tyrannical foster mother?

0:13:220:13:25

Oh, pass.

0:13:250:13:27

Miss Hannigan. Who sings this song?

0:13:270:13:29

# Jump in the Cadillac, girl, let's put some miles on it

0:13:290:13:32

# Anything you want, just to put a smile on it... #

0:13:320:13:34

-Eleftheria?
