More than 40 math-savvy teens from 10 schools in Metro Manila will showcase their talents and vie for prizes during the MTG-SHARP-DepED-SM Math Trail and Problem Solving Competition which will be held at SM North EDSA in Quezon City on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Registration will start at 12:30p.m. and competition will follow immediately.

“Many math wizards look forward to this contest each year. There are many talented students who come from different schools in the Philippines to compete. Instead of making mathletes come to one venue, we go to their respective region to conduct the elimination round and eventually the final round.” said Dr. Simon Chua, MTG president. “Regionalizing math trail is more effective because it enables the participation of many schools especially when elimination round is clustered in two or three groups depending on the size of the geographical area of the region,” he added.

The math trail is a new competition format first introduced in the Philippines in 2008. Though few years old, yet most participants have adjusted themselves so quickly by scheming effective strategies in dealing with the time-pressured contest. Indeed, the name of the game was really teamwork plus mathematical acumen.

In this NCR final, the participants will have 7 stations to visit to gather data or information needed for the computation of the results of the given problems. The teams composed of 4 members each are given only one hour to collect pertinent details from all stations and to solve the problems in the area prepared for them.

The co-organizer, SHARP through Collins International Trading Corporation has exciting prizes for the winners other than the certificates of distinction and participation which they will receive during the awarding ceremony which comes just right after the contest.

These are the following participants from the different schools in the National Capital Region qualified for the final round:


  1. De La Salle Santiago Zobel School
  2. Taguig Science High School
  3. Elizabeth Seton School
  4. Makati Science High School
  5. Sen. Renato Cayetano MS & Tech HS
  6. Westfield Science Oriented School
  7. Sto. Nino de Eucharistia Academy
  8. Grace Christian College
  9. Philippine Institute of Quezon City
  10. St. Mary's College, Quezon City
