“You can’t become the scientist, but mathematics is obliged to know!”
This Saturday, October 18, the “Eureka-2014” Open Regional Mathematical tournament for students in grade 9 to 11 took place. The general partner and co-organizer was the Noosphere Engineering School together with Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovs’k National University and the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Lyceum.
It was the sixth time that the math competition has been held and the best participants, who are already university students will go on to attend the “Project Management” program of Noosphere Engineering School.
The tournament is trying to generate interest in mathematics among current students by showing its application in everyday life through a specially selected system of problems.
The competition was held in three categories:
1. Academic Research “Mathematics and its Applications” - heuristic problems to popularize math knowledge including mini-research problems across three levels of difficulty, including intuitive reasoning.
2. Computational Mathematics -heuristic problems that involve working with a computers.
3. Mathematical modeling -problems for the construction and study of models in physics, biology, geography and linguistics.
The competition also involved extensive use of computer technology.
The tournament was attended by students from grade 9 through 11 from Dnepropetrovsk and its region, as well as from the capital, Kiev. Representatives from Dnipropetrovsk Vladimir Boyko, 9th Grade; David Shiroyan, 10th grade; and Arseny Shulikov, 11th grade came in first in the competition.
In total students from Dnipropetrovsk placed first in 14 out of 18 winners at the tournament including 10 students from the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Lyceum studying in a physics and math specialization.
Congratulations to the winners and we look forward to seeing you at the Noosphere Engineering School.
