Abbey Students Dominate Math Contest

By: Ariel Corsano, Student Reporter


McMaster University’s annual Math @ Mac Online Math Competition is open to students of all grades and is designed to engage and challenge students in mathematics through problem solving. This year, a total of 915 teams from 57 schools competed, both domestically and internationally. Among these competitors, Loretto Abbey students stood out by taking home the top seven places in the grade eleven category!


Baijia Li was the school champion, coming in first place among all the grade elevens who competed. Dandan Tan and Hongxuan Wang placed second and third, with each of the top three students winning a monetary prize for their phenomenal achievement. Additionally, Yujie Ma, Lanting Chen, Xinqi Meng, and Ningxin Kong received honourable mentions for their outstanding scores.


Succeeding in math contests not only demonstrates excellent mathematical competency, but also strong analytical thinking skills, which are highly valued among universities and employers.


We are proud of our Grade elevens’ accomplishments,” said Mr. Shaun Hussain, Department Head of Mathematics.We look forward to their continued success in future math contests this year.”


Congratulations to the winners and to all of the students who wrote the contest for their continued effort and excellence! Thank you to the math department, especially to Mr. Hussain and Dr. Kuriyan, for organizing the contests and encouraging students to partake in these enrichment opportunities. The school’s support of its students through such opportunities is essential to the spirit of Loretto Abbey and its commitment to helping students reach their full potential.
