HFI Salutes PH Team to 58th International Mathematical Olympiad

HARI Foundation, Inc. roots for the PH Math team to the 58th International Mathematical Olympiad. Flying off to this year’s host city, Rio de Janeiro are: (first row, L-R) Team Leader Dr. Richard Eden (Ateneo de Manila University), Clyde Weslet Ang (Chiang Kai Shek College), Farrell Eldrian Wu (MGC New Life Christian Academy), Deputy Team Leader Dr. Louie John Vallejo (University of the Philippines-Diliman); (second row, L-R) Sean Anderson Ty (Zamboanga Chong Hua High School), Shaquille Wyan Que (Grace Christian College), Kyle Patrick Dulay (Philippine Science High School-Main Campus), and Albert John Patupat (De La Salle University Integrate School). IMO veterans Wu and Dulay brought home the country’s first-ever gold medals from the 2016 Olympiad in Hong Kong.

 

July 8, 2017, Ateneo de Manila University. HARI Foundation, Inc. (HFI), the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), proudly supports the Philippine delegation to the 58th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

During the team’s sendoff party at the Ateneo de Manila University last July 8, HFI President Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo sent the team her warm congratulations and challenged them to put their knowledge at the service of society. “More than simply putting one more gold medal on display, what we truly wish is to see you unleash the power of numbers to benefit society.... The true power of numbers goes beyond acclaim, prestige, or mind-boggling formulae. It is about moving from theory to practical application in order to build a better world and to inspire others to follow your lead.”

 

The IMO, which will be held this year in Rio de Janeiro, is considered the biggest and most prestigious mathematics competition for high school students the world over. Over 600 students from more than a hundred countries from five continents compete annually, making the IMO a seedbed for the world’s most prolific mathematicians.

 

In the Philippines, the yearly competition is organized by the Mathematical Society of the Philippines (MSP), the country’s premier mathematical professional organization. In 2016, the Philippine team bagged for the country its first two gold medals at the 57th IMO in Hong Kong. This brings the country’s total medal count to 51--21 honorable mentions, 21 bronzes, seven silvers, and two golds. This achievement brought the Philippines’ ranking up to 17th of 109 participating countries.

 

For this year, six students hurdled the MSP’s intense nationwide selection program: Clyde Wesley Ang (Chiang Kai Shek College); Kyle Patrick Dulay (Philippine Science High School – Main Campus); Albert John Patupat (De La Salle University Integrated Schoo); Shaquille Wyan Que (Grace Christian College); Sean Anderson Ty (Zamboanga Chong Hua High School); and Farrell Eldrian Wu (MGC New Life Christian Academy). Save for Ty, this is the veteran team that brought the country honor with two Golds, two Silvers, and two Honorable Mentions from the IMO 2016 in Hong Kong.

 

According to Fr. Bienvenido Nebres, former President of the Ateneo de Manila University and past MSP President, “We have been working hard to raise the level of mathematics and science in the Philippines and one of the best ways to encourage young people is (through) competitions…. We are creating models for young people…. The 2016 IMO results just prove that the country’s youth has the potential to measure up with the world’s best mathematicians.”

 

MSP President and Director of the Institute of Mathematics of University of the Philippines-Diliman Marian P. Roque, PhD, thanked HFI for its corporate sponsorship, stating, “For many years, we have been involved in the training of teachers, but it is just as important to train our future.… I know (the team) would do honor for our country. We hope that they come back to the Philippines … and serve their country. They are part of the future in helping our country develop further.”
