In line with Abu Dhabi University’s (ADU) mission to recognise students’ advanced skills, talents and abilities, ADU’s College of Arts and Sciences hosted the tenth Math Competition. The Competition witnessed the participation of over 380 national high school students representing 80 national schools which were divided into 130 teams.
The Competition provided students with the opportunity to explore the fascinating world of mathematics, utilise their critical thinking and solve complex mathematical problems. The Competition focused on two rounds that emphasised flexible thinking, creativity and logic, applicable in the real world rather than being purely focused on concepts and memorising formulas.
