The results of the final stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren in mathematics have been summed up. Pupils from 19 Moscow schools won 10 diplomas of winners and 56 diplomas of prize-winners. The competition was held from 17 to 25 April in Saransk.
Tenth-grader Vasily Silvestrov from the school named after Marshal V.I. Chuikov received a special prize for using the ideas of combinatorial group theory in solving a geometric problem.
The final stage included two competitive rounds, each of which had to solve four problems. They took five hours to complete. The results of the Olympiad were summed up by the sum of two rounds.
According to the scientific director of the Center for Pedagogical Excellence Ivan Yashchenko, mathematics education is actively developing in Moscow.
“Moscow is famous for its traditions of mathematical education. The first mathematical schools were opened in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and now the capital’s children can study in more than 400 schools of the Mathematical Vertical project. The methodological materials of the Center for Pedagogical Excellence are actively used in the Moscow Electronic School, which helps children, including those from other regions, to reach heights in the Olympiads,” Ivan Yashchenko emphasized.
