Caucasus Mathematical Olympiad outcomes- here they come

  • 18.03.2020

The biggest mathematical event of the year in Adygea is over. For five days and two rounds almost 200 teenage mathematicians from fourteen regions and nine countries proved to themselves and others their worth, strength, determination and mathematical prowess. Their works were written, examined and discussed at length.

It’s not only about competition – the two leagues (Grades 7-9, and 10-11) enjoyed a wide range of extra-curricular activities fit to suit every taste.

Today’s Closing Ceremony included the awards medals, diplomas and certificates to the brightest young minds of the Caucasus Mathematical Olympiad – 2020.

Today could be described as positively enlightening.

ASU Economics department hosted a special meeting for the Olympiad participants today. They were introduced to the evaluation criteria used by the Jury. Needless to say, the students were very excited: the winners would be chosen in the next 24 hours. 

After detailed explanation and review, the teenagers were whisked off to the local museums, where untold treasures, artwork and heritage landmarks of Adygea were proudly and reverently displayed.

After dinner everybody had a very special treat – “CoffeetimeBand” acapella concert. The “Voice” jury members were right – Asker Berberov &Co certainly could sing with the best of them.

CMO – 2020: Day Off

  • 16.03.2020

After two whole days filled with problems – mathematical ones, of course – our young champions were entitled to a change of scene. It did not imply boredom . On the contrary, the children had a very busy schedule to follow.

  • Morning lectures with Professors Savvateev and Andreev charmed the sleep away from our young charges and introduced them to the beauty of Mathematics;
  • An outing to the movies with friends at the «IKOCinema»;
  • Lecture by Elena Bryzgalina about soft- and hard skills in higher education;
  • Adyghe dancing club;

And, of course, a disco night. And, trust me, these teenagers do know how to party.  What does tomorrow have in store? Can’t tell you, but you don’t want to miss it.

Caucasus Mathematical Olympiad 2020 – Round II

  • 15.03.2020

The second day brought around the next Round and a real chance for the participants to bring the victory home and amaze everyone with their problem-solving powers.

While teenage superheroes were busy seeking answers, their team leaders, CMO guests and university students attended a lecture on compiling Olympiad tasks. The speaker, Nazar Agakhanov, the Chairman of the All-Russian Schoolchildren Mathematics Olympiad, shared quite a few useful tips from personal experience.

The lecture was followed by a panel discussion on the newest and most rewarding preparatory techniques which enable the children participate in Math contests to the best of their abilities.

CMO-2020 – Day One

The second day signified knowledge and hard work to the CMO participants.

The first round of the Olympiad went on in ASU’s third academic building.  Soon the schoolchildren will find out their preliminary scores. But right now, scientific adventures await:

Nikolay Andreev, a renowned Russian mathematician and CMO Jury member fascinated everyone with the intricacies of Mathematics and Music;

Andrey Raygorodskiy – author of over two hundred research articles and the recipient of 2011 Presidential Award instructed his audience on the criteria of choosing national Mathematics team worthy of world championships and the absolute necessity of popularizing the scientific wonder that is Mathematics.

The Caucasus Mathematical Olympiad is ON

  • 13.03.2020

Adyghe State University hosts a unique mathematical event today. The fifth Caucasus Mathematical Olympiad – 2020 united almost two hundred participants from fourteen Russian regions and a number of neighboring states and countries. 

The participants are winners and prize-holders of regional and national competitions in their home counties.

The current mathematical event will continue for the next five days. Apart from the competition itself, the program includes a daunting and entertaining immersion into the cultural, natural and historical background of our beautiful region. For those scientifically or academically inclined, there would be quite a number of open lectures and seminars to choose from. Music lover and hikers will find suitably arranged activities.
