Miami, Florida (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
Earlier this month, the YourMathGuru (YMG) website announced the implementation of their brand-new The MathGuru Biweekly Olympiad as a means of challenging young people to improve their math skills while also winning prize money. Now the site is proud to announce the four winners of first December Olympiad as follows:
Mario de León Urbina – Costa Rica
Luis Alonso Fiestas Llenque – Peru
Sayar Karmakar – India (lives in Chicago, Illinois)
Pao Bugarin – Philippines
Each of the four winners collected prizes of $1,005.31 for providing the correct answers to problems posted on the http://www.YourMathGuru.com website. Not only were their answers correct, but they were also the most creative and well thought out solutions to some complex problems. YMG wants to officially congratulate all four winners for their outstanding work. They encourage others to get involved at http://www.YourMathGuru.com or http://www.TuGuruDeMate.com.
The MathGuru Biweekly Olympiad and the La Olimpiada Quincenal de GurúsDeMate offer participants a fun and exciting way to sharpen their math skills in areas covering algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, calculus, complex variables, probability, and combinatorics. The sites offer special sections to test knowledge of basic physics and chemistry as well.
Anyone interested in participating can do so simply by visiting and registering on either of the participating websites. It is possible to sign up as either a person needing help with math or one offering help. The sites do accept donations in order to cover their costs.
The YourMathGuru (YMG) website is an educational site that exists to help people improve their math skills. They do so by pairing those who need help with others who can provide that help, free of charge. Participation in both the biweekly Olympiad and the regular problem-solving opportunities on the site requires registration. Spanish-language participants can avail themselves of the same opportunities by visiting YMG's sister site at http://www.TuGuruDeMate.com. YMG was founded by internationally known math expert Alex Argimon.
