2016 Thailand Maths Challenge Finalist Results

British International School, Phuket (BISP) and Rangsit University’s College of Information and Communication Technology are proud to announce the winner of the 2015-16 Thailand Maths Challenge. Yu Qing Wu from Bangkok Patana school turned in a incredibly impressive performance to claim first place. Her achievement is all the more impressive given that she is still only in Year 11 at school and was competing with students up to two years older than herself.
The finalists round was held at Rangsit University’s Sky Lounge, which was arranged by Dr Suttisak Jantavongso Associate Dean of International Affairs at the University. Students had to complete 3 rounds of problem solving questions. The focus was on a branch of mathematics called Number Theory – which requires rigorous proof and mathematical logic.
The competition was judged by organiser Andrew Chambers, and fellow judge Assistant Professor Wongsakorn Charoenpanitseri. Professor Charoenpanitseri was one of the coordinators for the World Mathematics Olympiad held last year in Thailand and so brought a great deal of experience into the judging process. Both judges remarked about how impressed they were by the high standard of mathematics on display. As Andrew Chambers remarked, “We have seen some truly remarkable young mathematicians today – and possibly some mathematical stars of the future.”
Second place was also claimed by a Bangkok Patana student, Benjada Karprasertsri, whilst third place went to Santkorn Gorsagun from Mahidol University Demonstration School. There were also good results from Anglo Singapore and Trinity International School. The top three students were all offered full and partial scholarships to study at Rangsit University at the College of ICT.
Over 200 of Thailand’s top schools were invited to participate: international schools, bilingual schools, Thai private schools, and state schools in order to find the best young mathematicians in the country. The initial round was conducted at schools where teachers selected 3 students to represent them. The best students from this round were then invited to the finalists day at Rangsit University.
The student’s selected to compete in the first round were Mint Waisarayudh (Yr12), Mint Mahuttanatan (Yr13) and Khwan Wittayachanyapong (Yr13).
Andrew Chambers said, “Both the judges were extremely impressed by the entries from The Regent’s Bangkok this year – in particular Mint (Yr 13) who showed a real mathematical flair.” Mint was invited to the finalists day. However, it was a great shame that she had to be away with her family on finals day which was held during half term.
