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.

Monday June 7th 2010.
CIE/USA-DFW (CIE), The Dallas Fort Worth chapter of the Chinese Institute of Engineers hosted over one thousand people at its annual MATHCOMP/ MATHFUN event held at the COLLIN COLLEGE, Plano campus, at 2800 E Spring Creek Parkway Plano TX 75074, last Saturday on June 5th 2010 from 12:00 NOON to 5:30 PM.
As demonstrated in previous years the event was overwhelmingly and successfully received by the Dallas Fort-Worth community. CIE automated its registration process this year and focused on making the event more upscale for the comfort of the contestants. The purpose of CIE MathComp/MathFun is to offer more avenues to parents and children in creating interests in Mathematics and building enjoyment in the subject to the path of superior problem solving skills and mathematical abilities.
Four hundred and thirty students who just completed grade one to grade seven this spring 2010 semester took the Math tests. Grade one to grade seven question sets had thirty questions and grade seven had forty. Grade one to grade three tests ran for forty five minutes while grade four to grade seven tests ran for an hour. This year’s tests questions were created by a team headed by Professor of Mathematics, Dr Jianzhong Su, from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington.

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.
