Traditional annual Olympiad in mathematics among students was held at Tashkent Branch of Plekhanov Russian University of Economics.
In 2020 it was decided to develop mathematics, chemistry, biology and geology taking into the account potential of scientific schools in Uzbekistan, as well as based on national interests and development directions at present stage. This was stated at meeting of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev with scientists, young researchers, heads of scientific institutions and production representatives.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev noted that potential of Uzbek mathematical science is highly appreciated in the world, authoritative schools on functional analysis and differential equations, probability theory and algebra are formed in the country, seven mathematicians are members of the World Academy of Sciences.
“Mathematics is a basis of all exact sciences. A child who knows mathematics well will grow prudently and be able to successfully work in any field,” said the president.
The importance of holding various mathematical competitions among students, students and teachers, worthy of encouraging the winners of such competitions, improving the system of olympiads was also emphasized.
Opening Mathematical Olympiad, director of the branch, academician of Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan Abdurakhmanov K.Kh. emphasized that last decades have been marked by the development of mathematical methods and introduction of information technology into all spheres of human activity, including economy. Globalization of the world economy and acceleration of socio-economic processes, as part of digitalization, require high level of mathematical culture of student economists. And annual Mathematics Olympiad held at the Branch helps to increase interest in mathematics, development of logical thinking and creative beginnings among students.
