The DFW Chapter of CIE is once again hosting their excellent and well-attended math competition and math fair. The event is open to students currently in 1st through 7th grade.
The date this year is a bit later, Saturday, July 9, but it will once again be held at Collin College at 2800 E Spring Creek Parkway.
CIE has posted the results of their recent MathComp here. Participation was very high this year and many Metroplex Math Circle participants were among the winners in the older grades. One of the highlights was a presentation to parents by Dr. Andreescu.
The 2010 CIE MathComp was a great success with over 430 students competing in grades 1 through 7. Many regular Math Circle participants were among the award winners particularly in grades 4 through 7.
A special highlight of this year’s event was a key note address given by our own Dr. Titu Andreescu. In the well attended lecture, Dr. Andreescu gave the parents a useful primer on various math contests and made a strong case for problems solving as a part of a full education. You can find Dr. Andreescu’s slides by clicking on the graphic to the right or the link at the bottom of this post.
We are always impressed by the turn out and the enthusiasm for the spring math competition sponsored by the Chinese Institute of Engineers. This year the contest will be held on June 5th at Collin College (2800 E Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, TX 75974). Here is the description from the CIE web site.
The annual MathComp is a very popular math competition, providing young students of grade 1-7 the opportunity to demonstrate their math problem solving skills. MathFun is an interactive program allowing parent/children to work together in solving math quizzes and games which stimulate the students’ interest in mathematics. Students from 1st to 7th grade in the spring semester of 2010 are invited to register for the competition and enjoy the fun. Registration is now open through May 26, 2010.
This year should be particularly good as they have asked our own Dr. Titu Andreescu to be their keynote speaker.
