The Filipino math wizards with more than a million others from about forty countries throughout Australia, the Pacific and South East Asia have registered to attempt the same tasks, on the same day in this year’s Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) scheduled on Thursday, August 7, 2014.
The 2014 AMC which gains the support of the Department of Education through the issuance of DepEd Advisory No. 192, s. 2014 dated May 2, 2014 aims to
1. Highlight the importance of mathematics as a curriculum subject;
2. Give students an opportunity to discover talent in mathematics; and
3. Provide resources for the classroom and general discussion.
This year, close to two thousand six hundred math savvy Filipinos will take part in either the Middle Primary Division (for incoming Grades 3 and 4), Upper Primary Division (for incoming Grades 5 and 6), Junior Division (for incoming Grades 7 and 8), or Intermediate Division (for incoming Grade 9 and 4th Year HS).
The following are the partial lists of 2014 AMC participants.
