1st UCMAS NATIONAL COMPETITION at University Felix Houphouet-Boigny
The first edition of the UCMAS National Competition in Côte d’Ivoire took place on Saturday, the 28th of April, 2018. Students aged from six to fourteen gathered at the Felix Houphet Boigny University, Cocody, from various international schools around the city for the highly fascinating mental mathematics – the Universal Concept Mental Arithmetic Systems. The theater was filled to the brim with competitors and their family members, teachers and organizers.
It was easy to see that the competitors were well-prepared. The atmosphere was filled with expectations. This was heightened by the line-up of 16 trophies displayed and waiting to be won. The competition which was carried out by elimination was stiff, and it sustained the anticipation and thrill of its audience and spectators to the very end.
A total of 11 schools and centres participated in the event.
We are delighted that students from Morning Glory won 18 medals and 5 trophies.
1st, 2nd & 3rd in the Visual Calculation and 2nd in the Listening Calculation.
