Last February 4, the Mathematics Trainers’ Guild (MTG), Philippines, a non-stock and non-profit organization of Math teachers, and the DepEd NCR conducted the 2017 MTG-Sharp-DepEdNCR Math Trail and Problem Solving Competition finals at The Skydome, SM North Edsa, Quezon City.
One of the main objectives of the competition is to provide an in-depth experience to students to learn mathematics in a collaborative manner.
Four high school students from Xavier School, all members of the Xigma Club, participated as a team. These students are Matthew Shawn K. Tansiongkun (G8B), Steven Gabriel K. Chua (G9A), Ryan Mark L. Shao (G10A), and Kimmayong T. Ayahao (G11A).
The team initially ranked 5th during the elimination round held last January 25, making them advance automatically to the finals. Out of the 21 schools participating in the final rounds, the XS team was victorious in winning first place. The team worked closely during the entire contest, going from one checkpoint to the next, arranged in ascending difficulty. The team received a cash prize of Php 7,500.00, medals, and certificates, and a 16″ Dowell stand fan for the school.
Xavier School congratulates these hard working students for a job well done! May they continue to nurture their passion for Math and excel in everything they do. Luceat lux!
