2nd AGYA Math Olympiad Camp

 

Working Group Project

The 2nd AGYA Math Olympiad Camp in November 2017 in Doha/Qatar will continue to provide young students with an outstanding opportunity to engage in mathematic activities and foster their talents.


Solving mathematical challenges by learning new problem-solving techniques and mathematical concepts will be at the heart of the camp and serves as an ideal preparation for international math competitions, such as the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The IMO is one of the oldest and most respected international competitions for young talents. The training during the camp will be provided by experts from Germany and Qatar with ample experience in national and international math competitions and Olympiads.
It is the aspiration of AGYA’s 2nd Math Olympiad Camp in Doha to guide the young participants not only to developing new skills and reaching the next level of mastering mathematics but also to gaining valuable experiences in mathematical competition. The internal competition during the camp will serve as an excellent training field for students who wish to engage in international math competitions. Participants will gain precious insides on how to deal with problems that are tested in international math competitions.

The 2nd AGYA Math Olympiad Camp of 2017 will take place from 23 to 25 November and will be hosted at Texas A&M University at Qatar. It is a project of the Arab-German Young Academy of Sciences and Humanities (AGYA) in cooperation with Texas A&M University at Qatar and will serve as an excellent platform for productive interaction between students, trainers, teachers and university professors from Qatar and Germany. The continuation of this concept will further strengthen the scientific cooperation and societal rapprochement between Qatar and Germany. All participants who conclude the full program will receive certificates.

On 26 November 2017, the Arab-German Young Academy of Sciences and Humanities (AGYA) and Texas A&M University at Qatar are further organizing an international panel discussion on "Mathematics and Internationalization: Innovative Approaches in Research and Education" in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Gulf Region. The event takes place in the framework of the Qatar-Germany Year of Culture 2017.
