SAN JUAN CITY LITTLE MATHEMATICIANS TO COMPETE IN INTERNATIONAL CONTESTS THIS 2019


“Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality”. Richard Courant

SDO San Juan beams with pride as six San Juan little mathematicians attend the summer intensive training called Mathematical Olympiad Summer Training Program (MOSTP) at the Philippine Institute of Quezon City. This is a summer enhancement program which is compulsory to all successful Young Mathematicians’ In-House Intensive Training Program (YMIITP) trainees. The training is scheduled on April 23 – May 24, 2019 from 8:00AM to 4:00PM, Monday to Saturday. They will undergo 10 to 12 several sets of test to identify their overall performance as reference for the international competitions. They will eventually represent the Philippines in the different international mathematics competitions.

This is a result of their successful bid during The Mathematical Challenge for Filipino Kids Training Program (MCFKTP). They had to go through the intensive and comprehensive training program for the mathematically gifted elementary and high school students for 12 Saturday sessions.

The following shows the list of students and their accomplishments in various contests:

All of these would not have been possible if not for the support of the generous mayor Hon. Guia G. Gomez, and the top education leaders led by the OIC-SDS Dr. Alejandro G. Ibañez, OIC-ASDS Madam Flordelisa D. Pereyra, the entire CID family, the School Heads - Dr. Lucila G. Artuyo, Mr. Dennis M. Bacle and Mr. Lloyd T. Tulaylay, as well as the parents who were always with their children since the elimination up to this time. Their show of support gave these children the extra energy needed as they willingly gave up their leisure time and focus on the training instead. They learn early on that attendance to trainings such as this allow them to grow in their character and competence in preparation for their future.

As one of the students quipped, “basagan at tuyuan ng utak ngunit ito ay alay sa mga mahal namin sa buhay at sa SDO San Juan.”
