The forum took the place of addresses by four members from different continents, followed by open discussion. Ron is a highly experienced mathematics educator and was one of those responsible for introducing the Canadian Competitions at the University of Waterloo in He was elected to the Bulgarian Parliament, and became Chairman of the Parliament, one of the most responsible positions in the country. Unlike the International Mathematical Olympiad, an event designed to enable the elite students of all countries to test their skills against each other, the WFNMC was always designed to have wider application, enabling students of all standards to be involved and hopefully benefit.

It was Peter O’Halloran’s study leave at Waterloo in where he first learnt of mathematics competitions on a wide scale and planned the introduction of similar events, adapted to local conditions, in Australia. The close proximity of many facilities enabled highly useful contribution between the many delegates from all parts of the world.


Francisco Bellot Rosado received the BA degree from University of Madrid in and belloy been associated with the Institute Emilio Ferrari of Valladolid in some capacity sinceserving both as secretary and as principal, and later as Associate Professor in the department of Algebra, Geometry and Topology.

The efforts, orientation, and help from Francisco Bellot made it possible, inthat Costa Rica became the first Central American country in being home for the XI O. It also intends to articulate the role and use of competitions in mathematics education. Presently, he is working on the organization and initiation of a new international mathematical olympiad for the six Central American countries and we are sure he will succeed as usual.


Mathematics > General Mathematics

Speaking softly, he delivered a true challenge. After serving two years as deputy leaders of the Spanish Olympiad team rosaod andhe served for the next 8 years as team leader. It has until had three Presidents, two of whom have served for long terms and made significant individual contributions.

He conceived the idea of such an organization in which mathematicians from different countries could compare their experiences and hopefully improve their activities as a result. One of the main results was a decision to form a task group to consider and report on francosco in which teachers may become more involved with activities.

Also Francisco Bellot-Rosado has been a very influential figure in another prestigious mathematical contest hellot involves more than twenty-five countries: Up to three of these Awards are now made every two years. Now retired, Rosad decided that it was time to move on, and he announced that he would not be available as President. He argued that for the sake of problem culture as well as for practical applications, e. Both are intended to recognise achievement in establishing Mathematical Enrichment Programs, as recognised from an international perspective.

Highlight was possibly the Japanese speaker Nob Yoshigahara, a puzzle creator, who showed some ideas which might also be useful in the creation of mathematics problems. Additionally, Francisco is noted for single-handedly founding a Mediterranean Regional Mathematics Olympiad. Presentation of Latvian Medals This year is the 50th year of the Latvian Mathematical Society, which decided to commemorate the year by awarding Gold Medals to a number of mathematicians and mathematical educators who had made international contributions to their field.

This Newsletter was initially edited by Warren Atkins Australia. Again quoting from a letter of nomination, “As an O.


Other aims in the next four years will be to develop a statement on the role and scope of WFNMC, not only with competitions but related activities such as enrichment courses, mathematics clubs, mathematics camps, problems journals and resources for teachers and how WFNMC sees the benefits of competitions and the related activities to mathematical education in general. In addition, there were some business meetings in which elections, presentations of awards, and discussion on the future took place.

The organization and facilities in Tokyo were outstanding. He was an inaugural Vice-President, founded the international conferences of WFNMC with an outstanding conference at Waterloo WFNMC1 infilled in the gap to become President in and saw through, at his own initiative, a Constitution, which was approved in The first principal method of communication was a Newsletter, published soon after founding of the organisation, later to become the Journal “Mathematics Competitions”.

One of Francisco’s recommenders said, francieco to his Pravets talk, “was about the practice of recycling competition problems in the problem creation and problem selection. Finally, a web site will be developed to attempt to make on-line the various significant competitions and related activities around the world, a description of the competitions, and contact details.
