Junior Mathematical Olympiad Success

17 September 2014

There are many opportunities throughout the school year to take part in additional maths challenges and competitions and Mr Brown, Head of Mathematics in secondary, tells us about a recent one that our students excelled in.

  • Junior Mathematical Olympiad gold medalist from the British International School Shanghai Puxi
  • Junior Mathematical Olympiad gold medalist from the British International School Shanghai Puxi
  • Junior Mathematical Olympiad gold medalist from the British International School Shanghai Puxi

Each year we enter about 90 students into the Junior Mathematical Challenge. This challenge is aimed at helping our youngsters develop their problem solving skills and to think critically.

Last May, Brian Jeong Gyeom Kim then in Year 8 and Harvey Yuen then in Year 7, scored so well that they were invited to the much more challenging Junior Mathematical Olympiad.

Both boys did very well to get through to this round and both received a participation certificate.

Brian Jeong Gyeom Kim did especially well and, out of approximately 1,200 students who were invited to participate, achieved a Gold Medal and a book prize, which places him within the top 30 of all Junior Mathematical Olympians worldwide!

An outstanding achievement, well done Brian.

- Martin Brown, Head of Mathematics
