Saxony-Anhalt: Five first prizes in the final of the primary school math Olympiad

Halle (dpa/sa) - Five boys and girls have been named state winners at Saxony-Anhalt's State Mathematics Olympiad for primary schools. The third and fourth graders put in particularly good performances and were honored with first prizes, said the state representative for the Mathematics Olympiad, Rainer Biallas, after the competition on Saturday in Halle. A total of 74 students qualified for the state finals. There they had to solve seven demanding tasks in a two-hour exam that went beyond elementary school level. Biallas emphasized that it's less about arithmetic and more about good thinking.

The first prizes in grade 3 went to Levi Antal from the Friederikenschule elementary school in Dessau-Roßlau and Emma Brendler from the elementary school in Mühlanger. Paula Steinecke from the "Ludwig Schneider" Schönebeck elementary school, Jette Fäseke from the Beetzendorf elementary school and Benjamin Klein from the Flechtingen elementary school prevailed among the fourth graders. In addition to the five first prizes, 11 second prizes, 12 third prizes and 16 recognition prizes as well as two special prizes for particularly commendable solutions to a task were awarded.

After two years of interruption due to corona, the elementary school students were able to come together again for a state final round of the Mathematics Olympiad and do puzzles and arithmetic together. "The purpose of the competition is to identify and encourage children in this school age group with special mathematical talent at an early stage," explained Biallas.

Saxony-Anhalt is the only federal state with a state final round of the Mathematics Olympiad in primary schools. The State Mathematics Olympiad is organized on a voluntary basis by members of the State Association for the Promotion of Elements, teachers, professors, scientific staff, students and older pupils.
