Catalyst gets a booster. CA Sri Lanka partners with SLOMF to further the horizon of Mathematics in Sri Lanka.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) together with the Sri Lanka Olympiad Mathematics Foundation kicked off ‘Chanakya’s Mind Games’ an initiative aimed at developing out-of-the-box mathematical thinking, and mathematical abilities among the younger generation in Sri Lanka.
CA Sri Lanka has come onboard as the knowledge partner of ‘Chanakya’s Mind Games’ which aspires to be not just a mathematical puzzle but a puzzle intertwined with the history of mathematics and mathematical concepts that will promote unique thinking and problem solving among school students and the general public.
At a ceremony held at CA Sri Lanka recently, CA Sri Lanka officially came onboard as the knowledge partner of this initiative. The event was attended by CA Sri Lanka’s President Mr. Jagath Perera, Council Member Mr. Laknath Peiris, CEO Ms. Dulani Fernando and Senior Lecturer and Former Head of the Department of Mathematics of University of Colombo Dr. Chanakya Wijeratne, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Mathematics of University of Colombo Dr. Dayal Dharmasena, and Senior Lecturer of the Department of Mathematics of University of Sri JayawardenepuraDr. Thanuja Paragoda.
Research in mathematics education show that students’ incorrect beliefs and negative attitudes towards mathematics can negatively affect their performance in mathematics as well as career choices. Therefore, Chanakya’s Mind Games aim to contribute to positively changing such beliefs and attitudes amongst students.

About

Introduction

International Teenagers Mathematics Olympiad (ITMO) is a prestigious international mathematics Olympiad held every two years. It was last held in Philippines in 2017. This competition has the same structure as the International Mathematics Competition (IMC) but it is a better competition than IMC as the name suggests.  ITMO is held at two levels:
Key Stage II (Grades 6, 7, 8)
Key Stage III (Grades 9, 10, 11)
ITMO is good for students to showcase their mathematical talent at an international level.

Aims of ITMO:

  • Provide young students the opportunity to communicate mathematical ideas and reasoning through competition;
  • Present an avenue for mathematical interaction and foster camaraderie and friendship among youths of the world; and
  • Improve students’ higher order thinking skills through games and problem solving.
  • Provide a supportive and stimulating environment for mathematics, innovation and education.
  • Establish networks with international educational organizations for the development of teaching and learning of mathematics.
