NDO/VNA – President of the 2019 International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) Board Geoff Smith spoken highly of Vietnam’s math teaching and learning standards at the award ceremony at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom on July 21.

The Vietnamese team showed good performance, he stated, adding that students of the country study hard and have good skills in solving difficult problems.

At the 2019 IMO, all the six Vietnamese students brought home medals, with two golds and four silvers. The results placed Vietnam to the seventh position out of the 110 teams participating in the contest.

Vietnam first participated in the IMO in 1974, becoming the first Asian country to compete in the contest.

In 2004, the Vietnamese team achieved the highest result, bagging four gold and two silver medals. It ranked third three times in 1999, 2007 and 2017.
