Jonah's Math corner would like to congratulate all students honorably mentioned below and wish them new progress and successes in future endeavors.
In 2016 Galois Math Contest (for grade 10 students, held in mid April 2016), Rosie Zhao scored 38 (out of a full mark of 40), standing at top-20 nationwide among over 7000 contestants.
In Galois contest, students are required to work out answers by their own, and - for some of the problems - write complete solutions. There is no multiple choice questions. So Galois contest is posing higher challenges for student's ability, especially in problem solving and math expressions.
In 2016 Canadian Senior Math Contests (CSMC), Carman Hsieh and Hanbo Yu -- as the two students representing Jonah's Math Corner, both won the award of excellence.
In 2016 Canadian Intermediate Math Contests (CIMC), Anson Rui has won award of excellence.
Both contests are held in late November of 2016. They are the major Canadian math competitions nationwide.
In 2015 Fryer Math Contest (for grade 9 students, held in mid April 2015), Carman Hsieh and Rosie Zhao both have achieved excellent results.
Carman has 38 marks (out of a full mark of 40), and she stands in top-20 nationwide among over 5000 contestants. Rosie has got 36 -- another excellent mark for her.
Rosie also won a couple of math contest awards last year. Please refer to "Math Competition Results 2014".
In Fryer contest, students are required to work out answers by their own, and - for some of the problems - write complete solutions. There is no multiple choice questions, unlike lower-grade contests like Gauss. So Fryer contest has posed higher challengest for student's ability, especially in problem solving and math expressions.
Jonah's Math corner, at which both of them are taking math lessons, would like to congratulate them and wish them all the best in future endeavours.
The award winners in major (National/International) math competitions are:
These students, as announced above, they have achieved collectively magnificent results. Some have earned awards multiple times. Most chose to participate in contests at the public schools they attended.
Let us applaud to their achievements. Congratulations!Results for CIMC
Rosie Zhao, Jane Shi and David Luo were awarded in CIMC (Canadian Intermediate Math Contests) as “distinction”. Rosie Zhao had the top scores of all Calgary participating students (sharing top score with R. Kang) while Jane shines at grade-10 level.
Rosie Zhao has been studying in the School's math program for a number of years, and made great progresses. The School applauds both her efforts and achievements!
Most impressive in COMC (Canadian Open Math Challenge) are achieved by students Jane Shi, Josh Geng, as well as the youngest student David Luo.
The FGH (Frier / Galois / Hypatia) contests are a series of high-profile math contests. Compared to the traditional PCF contests (Pascal /Cayley /Format), questions in FGH contests are at higher challenging level. What's more, the FGH do require full solutions for designated questions, so students must earn scores by solving problems as well as presenting solutions clearly and in logical inherent manner.
In the most popular Gauss Contest, Kevin Wang has earned a perfect score in Gauss Grade Seven. Josh Geng was awarded in Pascal (for grade-9; multiple-choice questions).
Overall, Alberta students (especially in Calgary) shine in year 2014 in math contests, and they made a breakthrough in intermediate contests compared to year 2013. We are pleased to see their progresses and offer whatever can be done to help youths realize their dreams.
