Garden International School student tops South East Asia Maths Challenge20 Mar 2014
Lee Kyung Chan shone for Garden International School (GIS) when he emerged in first place for the individual round at the South East Asia Maths Challenge (SEAMC) held in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam on 1 – 2 March 2014.
Lee’s Year 10 GIS Dragons Maths team bagged two first place titles and a third in the team rounds, pushing GIS to an impressive overall second place ranking, beaten only by Hong Kong International School.
336 students from 56 schools took part in the two-day event that challenged students with various mathematical conundrums to test their knowledge application and skills limit.
Every year at SEAMC, hundreds of international school students aged 15 or younger come together for a long weekend with their teachers to share their passion for mathematics and problem solving. Each school can enter two teams of three students. The Warry Cup is awarded to the overall winning team at the end.
