On March 4, the twelve UNIS Hanoi students from the South East Asia Math Competition (SEAMC) team returned to Hanoi with several medals and 4 Golden ticket invitations to the World Mathematics Championships hosted at the University of Melbourne.
In early March, 7th -9th grade UNIS Hanoi students traveled to Ho Chi Minh City to participate in two intense and fun filled days of mathematical challenges hosted at the International School of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The students worked hard in preparation for the big event, meeting with their math coaches after school on Fridays to practice their math skills and strategies. There were rounds of code breaking, lightning, duel, pursuit, open, mathematician, and more! Some rounds required teamwork and other rounds required knowledge itself. Each team also gave a three minute presentation at the event based on what inspired them about mathematics in the natural world.
Overall the SEAMC students were challenged, had a great learning experience, had loads of fun doing mathematics, and had a lot of success on the international stage.
