QU Math Championship concludes with the distribution of prizes to the winners

370 students in different disciplines from Qatar University (QU) Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q) and Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) compete in the 3rd edition of QU’s Math Championship. The event was organized by three QU departments: The Student Learning Support Center (SLSC); the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics at the College of Arts and Sciences and the Mathematics Department of the Foundation Program, Deanship of General Studies.

The championship aims to provide equal opportunities for all students with respect to their majors who were divided into two levels. Level 1 included students from the Foundation Program and students specialized in non-scientific majors at QU. Level 2 was more advanced and targeted engineering and scientific students from all the universities.

At the closing ceremony, the winners and the outstanding participants were awarded in the presence of Dr. Haya Nasser Al-Attiya, Associate Vice President for Student Success and Development at QU.

Dr. Temadher Al-Maadeed, Head of the Department of Mathematics Statistics and Physics said, “We regard the Math Championship as the most important activity we have planned for. We were very delighted with the numbers of students that showed interest and believe this is the biggest event for students in QU with participants from outside the university as well, and we hope for a bigger event in the future.”

Noor Al-Nakhala, Head of Math Unit at Student Learning Support Center, said, "The success of the championship which was organized in previous years, has inspired organizers to expand this year's competition to include in its third edition the participation of students from TAMUQ and CMU-Q in the second level to attract as many students as possible and provide opportunities for students from various universities to show their talents and motivate them to think out of the box. The success of this tournament was the result of constructive collaboration between the student affairs sector and the academic sector to provide the best for the students.”

Dr. Mohamed Rhouma, Department Head of Math at Foundation Program, said “The celebration of the mathematics winners of this year comes right after Qatar Math Day that was held on December 2nd which shows the dedication of the different entities in Qatar University to promote mathematics, the queen of science. We are also happy that foundation students and arts students participated and did very well in the competition which proves that mathematics is for everyone.”

The organizers from the three departments plan to extend participation in the future to high school students by providing more activities related to mathematics.
