5. In memory of Vitali Polonsky…

This year the texts of the district Olympiad were more complicated than in previous years, and in some parallels are very complex. It is very, very sorry that the children could not cope with the texts, probably, especially in the 6th grade, it was my mistake. I apologize to all our 6th graders. Although some participants showed decent results, in general, the Olympiad turned out to be very complex. Looking at the tasks, I did not expect such a thing. I have several teachers and all their comments on complexity were taken into account. But everyone is wrong.

Well, on occasion, I would like to remind them that on December 15, we will host the VIII City Olympiad for students of grades 4-6, where everyone can show their true level. Registration lasts until December 8, 2019.

I can't say about other parallels that the text wasn't uplifting. Consciously, each parallel was given a complex 5 tasks. This was done for two reasons. Firstly, in order to slightly orient the participants to the future level of the city Olympiad, and secondly, very often strong participants perform all the tasks of the district in an hour or two and run away either home or go to solve problems for the senior classes. This year, for the most part, this was not, as far as I know.

About the winners of the regional Olympiad. Here, of course, it should be guided that as in any competition the winners are not those who scored a predetermined number of points, but those who showed better results compared to others. In general, the jury should understand how many points in a particular class can be awarded.

I hope that next year everything will be better…, or the heads of district Olympiads in some areas will abandon the common texts and will prepare the tasks themselves.

Jury of the first fight of Kyiv tournament

The first mathematical battle of the Kyiv tournament will take place on November 24, 2019. I remind you that we need 24 brigades in 24 fighting in grades 7-11. I ask everyone who planned to be a member of the jury of Kyiv events to help us in the next two Sundays (I remind you that the 2nd battle will take place in a week, December 1). When we conducted the team olympiad the jury count was sufficient, I hope and this time the jury will not let us down.

I remind our potential jury members and ask them to arrive. It is also possible and necessary to invite professional colleagues, friends and acquaintances and beyond this list.

In memory of Vitali Polonsky…

This year the preamble in the yearbook "MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD COMPETITIONS OF SCHOOLCHILDREN OF UKRAINE: 2018-2019" will be dedicated to the memory of the permanent reviewer of these books, the Great Man and honored Teacher of Ukraine Vitaliy Borisovich Polonsky. We have been thinking for a long time in what form to make this section and stopped at this format – everyone who knew Vitali Polonsky and can and wants to write a few paragraphs about it, let him do it. The topic or content of the story is not essential, something you want to share, what you remember most. We especially ask you to do this to close friends, colleagues, students, etc. I ask you to send your memories to rublyovbv@gmail.com , we are waiting for them within a month, because the yearbook is already actively in work and will be issued soon. So please don't hesitate.

GLORY TO UKRAINE!!!

GLORY TO THE HEROES!!!
