A student team from the University of Macau (UM) received second prize at the Contemporary Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling of China (CUMCM). This is the fifth consecutive year that UM has received prizes at this contest. This year’s contest attracted 42128 teams from around the country, including 8 teams from Macao.

The UM team were comprised of three students Yang Zihan, Yin Shuheng and Chen Zhiben, the team was led by Prof. Liu Zhi from the Department of Mathematics.

Organized by the China Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the CUMCM is a national contest in the field of mathematical modelling. It is also the largest mathematical modelling contest in the world. This year’s contest attracted more than 120,000 students in 42128 teams from 33 provinces, cities, and autonomous regions in China, as well as from USA and Singapore. Only about 4 percent of the teams received first or second prizes.

Department of Mathematics has paid attention to improving the students’ skill of mathematical modelling. To provide consultancy and support to the students around the university, in early 2017, a committee of mathematical modeling consisting of three professors (Prof. Ding Deng, Prof. David Lei and Prof. Liu Zhi) has been established, and a sub-organization of UM Student Union entitled Mathematical and Interdisciplinary Modeling Association is formed. In recent years, in addition to the CUMCM, UM students have also won prizes at the variate modeling contests of United States and China.

澳門大學組成五支學生隊伍參與“2018年度全國大學生數學建模競賽",與全國4萬2千支學生隊伍較量。憑卓越表現脫穎而出,奪全國二等獎一項,這是澳大學生連續五年在此賽事獲獎。

由中國工業與應用數學學會舉辦的全國大學生數學建模競賽,為現時全國高校規模最大的基礎性學科競賽,也是世界上規模最大的數學建模競賽。2018年,來自全國33個省、市、自治區、香港和澳門特別行政區,美國和新加坡的1449所高校42128隊,超過十二萬名大學生參加了今年9月舉行的這項競賽,其中僅有約百分之四的隊伍獲獎。

澳大獲獎隊伍分別由科技學院數學系楊子涵以及工商管理的陳智犇和尹姝姮三位同學組成,並在澳大數學系劉志教授指導下,榮獲全國二等獎。

澳大數學系近年來重視學生數學建模與資料分析能力的培養,於2017年初年建立了由丁燈副教授,李兆隆副教授和劉志副教授組成的建模諮詢委員會為學生進行指導,以及由學生組織成立了澳大學生會數學與交叉學科建模學會,不同學院以及不同專業的學生對數學建模的興趣明顯提高,澳大學生以及研究生組成的隊伍連續多年在建模競賽中獲獎,說明數學系對學生所開設的建模培養已取得成效。
