The Mathematics Trainers’ Guild, Philippines has been conducting the Young Mathematicians’ In-house Intensive Training Program for students as young as Grade 3 up to high school. This year, MTG Phils has expanded its trainings to Grades 1 and 2 to form the Youngster Group.
The first ever Youngster Group had their in-house training at the Grand Tower Hotel in Iloilo City last March 26-28. They were with their parents or guardians for their special needs but they were serious in dealing with their sequence of sessions, series of quizzes and successive final exams.
Among the 40 participants, 24 made it to the qualifier status which entitles them to join the Philippine Team in an upcoming contest in China especially organized for their age bracket. Below is the list of the qualifiers.
