Three Filipino mathletes struck back with another perfect score, a consistent feat showing their seemingly inexhaustible number prowess, this time in the Hypatia and Fryer contests run by the Center for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) of the University of Waterloo in Canada.
Andres Rico Gonzales (Colegio De San Juan De Letran), who is one of the best in his batch, showed his flair for mathematics more eloquently than most of his peers as he scored 40 out of 40 in the Hypatia contest.
Filbert Ephraim Wu (Victory International School) and Sean Matthew Tan (Jubilee Christian Academy) unleashed their math might, leaving their Fryer contest paper impeccable.
The good harvest went on as three more Filipino math wizards ended as top scorers in the Galois and Euclid contests. Finishing the contest with flying colors is Sted Micah Cheng from Hope Christian High School for his impressive performance in the Galois Contest.
Joining the short list of top scorers are Julian Raymund Yu from British School Manila and Sean Anderson Ty from Zamboanga Chong Hua High School whose CEMC medals await them for their big success in the Euclid contest.
In addition, there are forty-nine other math wizards who are deserving of particular honor for winning in this year’s CEMC.
The CEMC develops and administers many internationally recognized contests to help to inspire the next generation of students to develop an interest in and love for mathematics and computer science.
The full list of winners from the Philippines are as follows:
