The China Post - - LOCAL -

Tai­wanese stu­dents have come away with 31 medals in the 2015 In­ter­na­tional Math­e­mat­ics Com­pe­ti­tion (IMC) in China, which has been go­ing on in Changchun, Jilin Province since July 27.

The medals in­clude three golds, 12 sil­vers and 6 bronzes. The 32-mem­ber Tai­wanese team also bagged 10 medals for ex­cel­lent per­for­mance in the IMC, the world’s sec­ond-largest math con­test in terms of scale, sur­passed only by the In­ter­na­tional Math­e­mat­i­cal Olympiad.

More than 600 ele­men­tary and ju­nior high school stu­dents from 28 coun­tries are tak­ing part in this year’s IMC in China, which will run through Aug. 1.

Sixth grader Liu Te-cheng, who won a gold medal in the sin­gles round for ele­men­tary school stu­dents, said in a press re­lease from the Tai­wanese team that math is his fa­vorite sub­ject.

It is the third time he has at­tended the in­ter­na­tional math com­pe­ti­tion and the first in which he has earned a gold medal, man­ag­ing only sil­ver in his pre­vi­ous two games, Liu said.
