LSGH JHS Students shine in various Math Competitions

20th SIPNAYAN

Last October 27, 2018, three teams of JHS students participated in the 20th SIPNAYAN competition held at Ateneo De Manila University Quezon City. SIPNAYAN is an annual mathematics contest that provides avenues for students from different schools to showcase their competence in mathematics.

Out of the three teams, Team A composed of

 ZARZA, Jayson Luis B. 10I

DE LEON, Iñigo Raphael S. 10G

TIRTAWIJAYA, Jason C. 8G

Were able to advance through the semi-final round. There were at least 43 schools and around 99 teams participated in the competition.

SOUTHEAST ASIAN MATHEMATICS OLYMPIAD (SEAMO)

SEAMO is a unique platform dedicated to provide resources for students of various levels to hone their problem-solving skills and to prepare for more challenging mathematical competitions. For participating students, SEAMO as an international competition, offers numerous benefits. Firstly, participating students benefit from a National and International Ranking. Secondly, since the question paper will be prepared at the same time for Philippines and as well as for other countries, the level of difficulty of both exams will remain the same. Therefore, this Olympiad will set a clear benchmark for Filipino students about their performance as compared to international students.

The local competition was held last September 22, 2018 at Sen. Renato Cayetano Memorial Science and Technology High School Taguig City.

TIRTAWIJAYA, Jason C.        8G

Candidates who have achieved a percentile rank of 60.0 or more are eligible to participate in the extended round to be held in Singapore on January 2019. Visit https://seamo-official.org/ for more information.
