With the participation of Syria and about 60 countries, the Iranian International Olympics for Mathematics Engineering was held today at the same time for four and a half hours continuously through the Internet, each team in their country through tests with high issues in engineering.
In the Olympics, 146 students were distributed among four geographic centers, namely, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Damascus University, for participants from Damascus and its countryside, Daraa, Sweida, Quneitra, and the Faculty of Science, Al-Baath University, for participants from Homs, Hama, Raqqa, and the Faculty of Science, Aleppo University. Tishreen for participants from Lattakia and Tartous governorates.
Hammoud pointed out that the correction of the answer sheets is carried out by the Central Scientific Committee in the Syrian Scientific Olympiad and adopts the best 4 results in each category to send to the organizing committee of the international competition to compete with the qualifiers from the other participating countries.
According to Imran Quba, head of the Scientific Committee for the Syrian Scientific Olympiad, the questions of mathematics include five questions, each of which has eight degrees, which are answered in writing, pointing out that participation along with 60 other countries gives Syrian students a chance to compare the level of knowledge and performance of them and others and create room for competition. To improve scientific levels and capabilities and achieve better results in the future.
The student Yaman Najib pointed out that the questions were suitable for applicants ranging difficult, indicating that he is participating in the math specialty for the first time in order to enter the experiment and gain experience in the way of preparation and answer to the next participants in order to reach global participation and achieve the gold medal and raise the name of Syria high in international forums.
In turn, the two students Lynn and Julie Ahmed that participation is a necessary step to develop skills and raise the capacity to think and endure throughout the hours of tests and prove the ability of Syria in the scientific fields before the countries of the world.
