Welcome Remarks

We would like to warmly welcome you to the announcement and awards presentation of the 2006 Hang Lung Mathematics Awards. This occasion marks the second time we have held a mathematics research competition for secondary school students in Hong Kong. We are extremely pleased not only by the participation and interest among students and teachers, but also by the creativity and ingenuity of the students in carrying out their research.

The dedication, energy, and support from the students, teachers, schools, the government, and our partner institutions have helped make the 2006 Hang Lung Mathematics Awards a great success. Your response and enthusiasm for this bi-annual competition makes our commitment worthwhile.

Welcome Remarks

The finalists of the 2006 Hang Lung Mathematics Awards are the teams whose mathematics research projects meet the highest academic standards in terms of execution, methodology, and scholarship. Each finalist team should be proud that their project has been carefully evaluated by the Scientific Committee and judged as the best among the 100 entries in the competition.

Mathematics is simply more than numbers -- it is the foundation upon which numerous scientific discoveries are built. There is no better way to develop mathematics and science education in Hong Kong than to have students and teachers participate in activities that nurture talented youths. Competitions like the Hang Lung Mathematics Awards can help foster creativity through research. By encouraging secondary students to engage in intellectual research, we are ensuring that our students remain at the forefront of mathematics and science in Hong Kong. Perhaps our efforts today will produce a future Nobel Laureate or Fields Medalist who will in turn inspire a new generation of mathematicians, scientists, and scholars.
