TVU – The Math Olympiad team from Tra Vinh University on April 13 takes part in the closing ceremony of the 30th National Mathematics Olympiad for Students in 2024 in Da Nang; the competition gathers around 700 high school and university students as well as over 185 instructors.

This year’s Olympiad is co-organized from April 8 to 13 by Duy Tan University (Da Nang), the Vietnam Mathematical Society, the Hanoi University of Science, Vietnam National University, and the Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics, under the patronage of the Ministry of Education and Training, the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations, and the Central Executive Committee of the Vietnam Students’ Association.

Participating in both Algebra and Calculus, the Tra Vinh team includes Kieu Gia Thinh, a student of the Information Technology class of 2022; Nguyen Thi Hoai Tam, a student of the Construction Technology class of 2023; Pham Thi Hue Tran, a student of the Chemical Engineering class of 2022; Nguyen Ngoc Xuan Mai, a student of Information Technology class of 2023; Nguyen Hoang Phuc, a student of the Information Technology class of 2022; Cao A Chau, a student of the Information Technology class of 2023; Le Van Hoc, a student of the Chemical Engineering class of 2022; Huynh Le Ngoc Trinh, a student of the Information Technology class of 2023; and Ha Tieu Uyen, a student of the Chemical Engineering class of 2022.

University students compete in two different subjects: Algebra and Calculus. Every university is allowed to take part in either group A or group B. Each subject has its own set of rewards, with no more than 50% of the contestants receiving a prize.

The TVU team’s leader, Mr. Nguyen Van Tien, the head of the Department of Applied Mathematics, claims that the Olympiad provides students with a healthy and academic playground and ignites their enthusiasm for Mathematics. Furthermore, the competition has enhanced the quality of math teaching and learning, as well as identified and developed talented math students into a team ready to participate in future competitions.

At the end of the competition, student Kieu Gia Thinh wins the consolation prize in Algebra, and student Ha Tieu Uyen wins the consolation prize in Calculus.

Initiated by the Vietnam Mathematical Society in 1993, the National Mathematics Olympiad for Students is now a place for contestants to challenge themselves with interesting mathematical problems and connect with other students from all around the country.

The competition is set up to encourage students to study Mathematics, identify talented individuals from universities and specialized high schools, and simultaneously create opportunities for connection among participants and the advancement of mathematics education to a higher standard.
