Five students from Morocco have been selected to take part in an international Mathematics contest organized in Mar Del Plata, Argentina, from July 4-14, 2012.
According to a report released by the Ministry of Education on Tuesday, the five participants were selected based on their exceptional mastery of mathematics. The Ministry has taken the initiative to train and prepare these students in order to enable them to perform successfully during the contest.
The selection process consisted of an initial phase in which the Ministry launched short-listing tests that participating students, from all regions, had to take. During the second phase, the selected students would take part in three training sessions to further develop their mastery of mathematics.
The Ministry confirmed that the Moroccan students who took part in the previous Math contest organized in Holland, Amsterdam, won two medals, one copper and silver, and two certificates of recognition.
