Siddhant Wins Maths Competition
Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM) , one of the exhibitors at the New Scientist Live (held in London at the end of September) held a competition to win a tab-let computer, which had nearly 400 entries.
Siddhant Mohapatra (8JU) was the lucky winner - hav-ing answered 6 maths questions correctly.
Siddhant was delighted to have won the competition and said:
Maths is a subject I love as it challenges me and I love using different approaches to find solutions to interest-ing problems. At New Scientist Live in London, at your stall of mathematics in the Real World, I was fasci-nated by the algorithm solution to fit maximum bags into a confined space. This concept of using maths to devise algorithms, as I saw in some other stalls about machine learning using algorithms has keenly nee-dled my interest in this area. At another stall I also learnt that a lot of models of the universe need deep mathematics. Maths can do so much.
I think the New Scientist Live is really fantastic and informative forum, exposing us to so many new ideas and possibilities. I fully endorse it, even if I am early-age for such a tall comment.
Thanks a lot to the Turing Gateway to Mathematics and partners for the award of a tablet, and providing me an impetus to love mathematics even more.
Whitmore High School has fostered me a lot in maths. I am sure it will help me excel into greater heights.
